     /usr/sbin/rwall -n netgroup...

     /usr/sbin/rwall -h hostname -n netgroup

     sends this message, preceded by the line:

     to all users logged in on the specified host machines.  With
     the -n option, it sends to the specified network groups.

                     network groups.



     -h hostname     Specify the hostname, the name of  the  host

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