NAME
       wedged - HylaFAX modem wedged script

SYNOPSIS
       /var/spool/hylafax/bin/wedged devid device

DESCRIPTION
       bin/wedged is the command script invoked by the facsimile server when a
       modem is deemed to be in an irreparable state and requires operator
       intervention.  This decision is based on the setting of the
       MaxSetupAttempts configuration parameter described in hylafax-
       config(5F).  The default wedged script sends electronic mail to the
       FaxMaster alias. The interval at which emails are sent can be
       configured in the etc/FaxDispatch file by setting the
       WEDGED_EMAIL_INTERVAL variable to the desired number of minutes (emails
       will be sent no more than every WEDGED_EMAIL_INTERVAL minutes, until
       the wedged condition persists).  If the variable
       WEDGED_DISABLE_FAXGETTY is set in etc/FaxDispatch then the script will
       attempt to disable any faxgetty processes spawned by the init(8C)
       process for the problematic modem.  In addition the faxq(8C) process
       automatically disables use of the modem for servicing outbound jobs.

       The devid argument is the identifier derived from the name of the
       modem's device file by substituting ``_'' characters for ``/''
       characters; e.g.  term_10 for /dev/term/10.  The device argument is the
       name of the character special device associated with the modem.

       If there exists an executable file /var/spool/hylafax/etc/resetmodem
       then that file will be executed upon execution of the wedged script in
       an effort to recover the modem.
