FAXLOCK(8C)                                                        FAXLOCK(8C)



NAME
       faxlock - tell a HylaFAX server to switch to LOCKWAIT state

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/bin/faxlock [ -q dir ] modem

DESCRIPTION
       faxlock sends a message to a HylaFAX faxgetty(8C) 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(5F) for a complete discussion of the structure
       and content of the spooling area.
