RWALL(1)							      RWALL(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     rwall - write to all users	over a network

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     rwall host1 host2 ...
     rwall -n netgroup1	netgroup2 ...
     rwall -h host -n netgroup

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     Rwall reads a message from	standard input until end-of-file.  It then
     sends this	message, preceded by the line ``Broadcast Message ...'', to
     all users logged in on the	specified host machines.  With the -n option,
     it	sends to the specified network groups, which are defined in

     A machine can only	receive	such a message if it is	running	rwalld(1m),
     which is normally started up by the daemon	inetd(1m).

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     wall(1), rwalld(1M), netgroup(4)

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The timeout is fairly short in order to be	able to	send to	a large	group
     of	machines (some of which	may be down) in	a reasonable amount of time.
     Thus the message may not get through to a heavily loaded machine.
