NAME
       vboxbeep - isdn voice box (beeper)

SYNOPSIS
       vboxbeep [OPTION] [OPTION] [...]

DESCRIPTION
       vboxbeep  is a daemon, that watches several message directories. If new messages are found
       it will beep. Vboxbeep does not use vboxd, it can only watch local directories.

       Vboxbeep is also used to stop this annoying beep.

OPTIONS
       Without any options, vboxbeep will signal an already running vboxbeep to  stop  its  beep.
       Only root can start it as daemon.

       -s, --sound HOURS
	      Hours  to  play  beep  signal. Use 24 hour format, like 0-23. Multiple hours can be
	      given separated by commas, a "*" is used for always, "-" for never.

       -m, --messagebox DIR
	      Message directory to scan. You can use this option several times.

       -p, --pause SECS
	      Time to wait between every check. Default is 5 seconds.

       -k, --kill
	      Kill a running vboxbeep. This option can only be used by root.

       -h, --help
	      Show summary of options.

       -v, --version
	      Show version of program.

NOTE
       vboxbeep will only work if it is installed suid root. This may be a security hole, so many
       distributions  do  not  install it suid root, and thus it's useless. If you want to enable
       vboxbeep, please read the distribution-specific documentation how to do	that  (e.g.  with
       debian gnu/linux read /usr/doc/isdnutils/README.debian).
