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.
