NAME

       faxquit - tell a HylaFAX server to terminate

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/sbin/faxquit [ -q queue-dir ] [ modem ]

DESCRIPTION

       faxquit  sends a message to a HylaFAX server process telling it to quit
       operation.

       If modem is specified, the faxgetty(8) process servicing the  specified
       modem  is  notified.   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''.

       If no modem is specified, faxquit will send the request to the ``FIFO''
       named pipe file causing the HylaFAX queue manager process to terminate.

       Note  that  server  processes  may  not  terminate   immediately.    In
       particular  the  faxq  process  will not exit until any active jobs are
       completed; this is necessary for proper operation (faxq must  wait  for
       child  processes  to terminate so that it can collect their exit status
       and update the state of the jobs being operated on).

OPTIONS

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

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.
