       etc/shutdown - server shutdown control file

       If  the file etc/shutdown is present it describes when a	HylaFAX	server
       is to be	shutdown and may contain a descriptive message	to  return  to
       clients	explaining  the	reason for the shutdown.  This file is used by
       the hfaxd(8C) program.

       The file	has the	following format:

	      <year> <month> <day> <hour> <minute> <deny> <disconnect>
	      <shutdown	message	text>

       The first line defines the date and time	the server should be  shutdown
       and  the	 time preceding	at which unprivileged clients should be	denied
       service or disconnected;	these fields are described in more detail  be-
       low.   Any  lines that follow the first are taken as the	text of	a mes-
       sage to return to clients when notifying	them of	a  scheduled  shutdown
       or when denying them service.

       <year>	 The decimal year; e.g.	1996.

       <month>	 The decimal month; e.g. 10 for	October.

       <day>	 The decimal day of the	month in the range [1..31].

       <hour>	 The decimal hour since	midnight; in the range [0..23].

       <minute>	 The decimal minute after the hour; in the range [0..59].

       <deny>	 The  time prior to the	shutdown time at which to deny service
		 to unprivileged clients.  This	value is specified as  decimal
		 number	in the form HHMM; e.g.	130 for	1 hour and 30 minutes.

		 Time  time  prior to the shutdown time	at which to disconnect
		 unprivileged clients that are logged in to the	server.	  This
		 value is specified as a decimal number	in the form HHMM.

       This  file is typically created using the ``SHUT'' command supported by

       hfaxd(8C), hylafax-server(5F)

			       January 18, 1996		  HYLAFAX-SHUTDOWN(5F)
