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.
