FAXQUIT(8C)                                                        FAXQUIT(8C)



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(8C) 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(5F) for a complete discussion of the structure
       and content of the spooling area.
