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.
