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

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