Server Syntax

Server commands use a common format.

Command_Name Parameter_1 Parameter_2

    The command line contains only Latin characters, and the command name and the parameters are separated by a single space. No spaces are allowed within the command name or parameters.

    Tab and New Line symbols cannot be used. Each command must be entered on a separate line.

    Parameters cannot use the following characters: < > & "

    To add a command to the option file, start the command line with a hash tag symbol (#).

    The maximum length of a line is 1024 characters.

    Upper case and lower case characters are not differentiated.

    The wildcard symbol (*) is permitted.

    Restrictions or permissions can apply to a group of similar users, computers, or IP addresses, by using the GROUP, HOST_GROUP,INTERNET_GROUP commands; however, the group must be defined before it can be used. Multiple groups can be created, and additional members can be added to an existing group at any time using the same command.

Server commands use common parameters to define client-side users.
