 NAME
      rusersd - network username server

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/lib/netsvc/rusers/rpc.rusersd [-l log_file] [-e|-n]

 DESCRIPTION
      rusersd is an RPC server that returns a list of users on the network.
      The rusers command prints this information (see rusers(1)).

      inetd invokes rusersd through /etc/inetd.conf (see inetd(1M)).

    Options
      rusersd recognizes the following options and command-line arguments:

	   -l log_file	  Log any errors to the named log file, log_file.
			  Errors are not logged if the -l option is not
			  specified.

			  Information logged to the file includes date and
			  time of the error, the host name, process ID and
			  name of the function generating the error, and the
			  error message.  Note that different services can
			  share a single log file since enough information
			  is included to uniquely identify each error.

	   -e		  Exit after serving each RPC request.	Using the -e
			  option, the inetd security file /var/adm/inetd.sec
			  can control access to RPC services.

	   -n		  Exit only if

			       +  portmap dies (see portmap(1M)),

			       +  another rpc.rusersd registers with
				  portmap, or

			       +  rpc.rusersd becomes unregistered with
				  portmap.

			  The -n option is more efficient because a new
			  process is not launched for each RPC request.
			  This option is the default.
