NAME

faxlock - tell a HylaFAX server to switch to LOCKWAIT state  

SYNOPSIS

/usr/sbin/faxlock [ -q dir ] modem  

DESCRIPTION

faxlock sends a message to a HylaFAX faxgetty(8) process servicing modem telling it to change its state to LOCKWAIT

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''.

 

OPTIONS

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

NOTES

When faxgetty changes it's state to LOCKWAIT, it will start looking for the UUCP lockfile for the device, and when the device is no longer locked, proceed to re-initialize the modem.  

FILES


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

Consult hylafax-server(5) for a complete discussion of the structure and content of the spooling area.
