NAME

       hosts.conf - Access control for Network UPS Tools CGI programs

DESCRIPTION

       The CGI programs (upsset.cgi(8), upsstats.cgi(8), upsimage.cgi(8)) use this file to
       determine if they are allowed to talk to a host. This keeps random visitors from using
       your web server to annoy others by creating outgoing connections.

DIRECTIVES

       MONITOR ups description
           The ups element is in the form upsname[@hostname[:port]]. To allow connections to a
           UPS called "snoopy" on a system called "doghouse" that runs upsd on port 7877, it
           would look like this:

               MONITOR snoopy@doghouse:7877 "Joe Cool"

           The description must be one element, so if it has spaces, then it must be wrapped with
           quotes as shown above. The default hostname is "localhost".
