FAXANSWER(8C)							 FAXANSWER(8C)

NAME
       faxanswer - tell	a HylaFAX server to answer the telephone

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/sbin/faxanswer [ -q queue-dir	] [ -h how ] modem

DESCRIPTION
       faxanswer sends a message to the	HylaFAX	faxgetty(8C) process servicing
       modem telling it	to answer the telephone.  This is useful, for example,
       when  a	modem is used on a shared phone	line and the server is config-
       ured to not normally answer the phone.

       The specified modem can either be the name (typically the  last	compo-
       nent  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.

       -h	 Specify exactly how the phone should  be  answered.   By  de-
		 fault,	 the  server process is	instructed to answer the phone
		 and accept any	kind of	call (voice, data, fax).   Discrimina-
		 tion  of the type of call is dependent	on a modem's adaptive-
		 answer	support.  The -h option	 can  be  used	to  force  the
		 server	 to  answer the	phone for particular type of call: one
		 of fax, data, voice, any, extern (to force faxgetty to	invoke
		 an  external  application  to	to  handle the call), or dialX
		 (where	X is a dialstring to dial before initiating a fax  re-
		 ception).   If	 using	dialX,	the  specified dialstring will
		 likely	need to	end with a semicolon (``;'').

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.
