NAME

faxabort - tell a HylaFAX server to abort a receive  

SYNOPSIS

/usr/sbin/faxabort [ -q dir ] modem  

DESCRIPTION

faxabort sends a message to a HylaFAX faxgetty(8) process servicing modem telling it to abort any active receive operation.

The specified modem can either be the name (typically the last component of the terminal port the modem is attached to), or the full name of the associated FIFO named pipe file, e.g. ``FIFO.ttym2''.

Note that to abort a send operation the faxrm(1) command must be used.  

OPTIONS

-q dir
Use a spooling area other than /var/spool/hylafax.
 

NOTES

On some systems it is not possible to abort a received facsimile because of problems in the operating system; on such systems the message sent by faxabort will be (silently) ignored.  

FILES


/var/spool/hylafax                 default spooling area
/var/spool/hylafax/FIFO            fifo for contacting faxq
