FAXLOCK(8) System Manager's Manual FAXLOCK(8)
faxlock - tell a HylaFAX server to switch to LOCKWAIT state
/usr/sbin/faxlock [ -q dir ] modem
faxlock sends a message to a HylaFAX faxgetty(8) 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''.
-q dir Use a spooling area other than /var/spool/hylafax.
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.
/var/spool/hylafax default spooling area
/var/spool/hylafax/FIFO fifo for contacting faxq
Consult hylafax-server(5) for a complete discussion of the structure and content of the spooling area.
