 NAME
      ftpshut - create shutdown message file to shut down the ftp servers at
      a given time

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/bin/ftpshut [ -l min ]  [ -d min ] time [ warning-message ... ]

 DESCRIPTION
      The ftpshut command provides an automated shutdown procedure that a
      superuser can use to notify ftp users when the ftp server is shutting
      down. This command will create a shutdown message file in the path
      specified by the 'shutdown' directive in the /etc/ftpd/ftpaccess file
      in the real, anonymous and virtual user accounts. For guest accounts
      the system administrator must copy the message file created in the
      real user account to the guest accounts manually.	 The server will
      check this file regularly to see if the server is going to be shut
      down.

	   -l min	  This option is used as deny_offset. New FTP access
			  is disabled 'min' minutes before shutdown. The
			  default value of 'min' is 10 minutes. This value
			  can be reset by the user.

	   -d min	  This option is used as disc_offset. All current
			  FTP connections will be dropped 'min' minutes
			  before shutdown. The default value of 'min' is 5
			  minutes. This value can be reset by the user.

	   time		  time, is the time at which the ftp server will be
			  shutdown. If time is set to the word `now' the
			  shutdown will be immediate. time can also be set
			  to a future time.  Future time can be specified in
			  one of the two formats: + number or HHMM. The
			  first format brings the ftp servers down in number
			  minutes.  The second format brings the ftp servers
			  down at the time of day indicated, using a 24-hour
			  clock format.

	   warning-message
			  The warning-message is the message the server will
			  flash to its clients on shut down. The user can
			  use a message of his choice or use the 'macros' or
			  'magic cookies' that are available. The server
			  will replace the macro with the specified text
			  string. The warning-message will be formatted to
			  be 75 characters long, including the length of any
			  expanded macros ("magic cookies"). The default
			  warning message is "System shutdown at %s".  The
			  following magic cookies are available:
