 NAME
      rwalld - network rwall server

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/lib/netsvc/rwall/rpc.rwalld [-l log_file] [-e|-n]

 DESCRIPTION
      rwalld is an RPC server that handles rwall requests (see rwall(1)).
      rwalld calls wall to send a message to all users logged into the host
      on which rwalld is running (see wall(1)).

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

    Options
      rwalld recognizes the following options and command-line options:

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

			  Information logged to the log 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 because 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.rwalld registers with portmap,
				  or

			       +  rpc.rwalld becomes unregistered with
				  portmap.

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