The nutclient_authenticate() function authenticates the user.

login is the user name.
passwd is the user password.

The nutclient_logout() function disconnects gracefully from the server.

The nutclient_device_login() function logs the fact that a system is drawing power from this UPS.

The nutclient_get_device_num_logins() function retrieves the number of clients which have been logged for this device.

The nutclient_device_master() and nutclient_device_primary() (note: the former is obsoleted since NUT v2.8.0 in favor of the latter) functions make sure that primary-mode functions like FSD are available if necessary.

The nutclient_device_forced_shutdown() function sets the "forced shutdown" flag on the device.

dev is the device name.
