       ftpshut - shut down all proftpd servers at a given time

       ftpshut [ -R ] [ -l min ] [ -d min ] time [ warning-message ]

       The  ftpshut  command  provides	an automated shutdown procedure that a
       superuser can use to automagically disconnect current  proftpd  connec
       tions, and deny new connections.  The command creates a control file as
       /etc/shutmsg to inform proftpd processes about an impending shutdown.

       time	 The time at which the ftp servers will be brought  down.   It
		 may be the word now, indicating an immediate shutdown, or a
		 future time in one of two  formats:  +number  or  HHMM.   The
		 first	form  brings the servers down in number minutes, while
		 the second form indicates an  exact  time  of	day,  using  a
		 24-hour clock format.

       -R	 Instructs  ftpshut to remove the /etc/shutmsg file, restoring
		 proftpd to its normal service.  If this option is used,  this
		 will be the only operation performed by ftpshut

       -l min	 Specifies  the number of minutes before shutdown that new ftp
		 access will be disabled.  If the -l option is not  specified,
		 a default of 10 minutes (or immediately, if less than 10 min
		 utes remains until shutdown) is used.

       -d min	 Specifies the number of minutes before shutdown that existing
		 ftp  connections  will  be disconnected.  If the -d option is
		 not specified, a default of 5	minutes  (or  immediately,  if
		 less than 5 minutes remains until shutdown) is used.

		 Optionally  provide  a message which will be sent to new con
		 nections (if denied) and existing connections	(when  discon
		 nected).   The  message can contain the following magic cook
		 ies, which will be replaced as follows before being  sent  to
		 new or existing connections:

		 %s  time proftpd is being shut down
		 %r  time new connections will be denied
		 %d  time current connections will be dropped
		 %C  current working directory (where applicable)
		 %L  local host name (or virtualhost name)
		 %R  remote host name
		 %T  local time (format Thu Nov 15 17:12:42 1990)
		 %U  username given at login time

       Proftpd	servers can only be shutdown via ftpshut if a master daemon is
       running in standalone mode.  Servers running in inetd mode  will  honor
       the shutdown message file created by ftpshut, however currently running
       servers may be chroot(2)ed, and unable to  read	the  shutdown  message
       control file.

       It  is  possible to set an absolute shutdown time which is earlier than
       the current time.  If this is the case, proftpd will not shutdown until
       the indicated time on the following day.
