FAXCONFIG(8C)                                                    FAXCONFIG(8C)



NAME
       faxconfig - dynamically change HylaFAX configuration parameters

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/bin/faxconfig [ -q queue-dir ] [ -m modem ] [ parameter value  ...
       ]

DESCRIPTION
       faxconfig sends messages to a HylaFAX server process telling it to
       install new values for one or more configuration parameters.  These new
       values are maintained only for as long as that server process executes;
       to setup long-lasting configuration parameters the appropriate
       configuration file(s) must be edited (see hylafax-config(5F)).

       faxconfig is especially useful for setting certain configuration
       parameters that control the operation of HylaFAX server processes.  For
       example, by manipulating the ModemPriority parameter of one or more
       faxgetty(8C) processes it is easy to dynamically reconfigure the order
       in which HylaFAX will assign modems to outbound jobs.

       If no modem is specified with the -m option, then faxconfig will send
       messages to the central scheduler process, faxq(8C).  If a faxgetty
       process is to be contacted, the specified modem must be the last
       component of the character special device filename the modem is
       attached to.

       Consult the hylafax-config(5F) for the list of configuration parameters
       that can be set with faxconfig.

OPTIONS
       The following options are available:

       -m devid  Direct messages to the faxgetty process servicing devid
                 instead of the central scheduler process, faxq.  The devid is
                 an identifier derived from the name of the modem's device
                 file; for example ttym2 for /dev/ttym2, term_10 for
                 /dev/term/10.

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