NAME
       faxconfig - dynamically change HylaFAX configuration parameters

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/sbin/faxconfig  [  -q	 queue-dir  ] [	-m modem ] [ parameter
       value  ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       faxconfig sends messages	to a HylaFAX server process telling it to  in-
       stall  new  values for one or more configuration	parameters.  These new
       values are maintained only for as long as that server process executes;
       to setup	long-lasting configuration parameters the appropriate configu-
       ration file(s) must be edited (see hylafax-config(5F)).

       faxconfig is especially useful for setting certain configuration	param-
       eters  that control the operation of HylaFAX server processes.  For ex-
       ample, by manipulating the  ModemPriority  parameter  of	 one  or  more
       faxgetty(8C)  processes it is easy to dynamically reconfigure the order
       in which	HylaFAX	will assign modems to outbound jobs.

       If no modem is specified	with the -m option, then faxconfig  will  send
       messages	 to  the  central  scheduler process, faxq(8C).	 If a faxgetty
       process is to be	contacted, the specified modem must be the last	compo-
       nent of the character special device filename the modem is attached to.

       Consult the hylafax-config(5F) for the list of configuration parameters
       that can	be set with faxconfig.

OPTIONS
       The following options are available:

       -m devid	 Direct	messages to the	faxgetty process servicing  devid  in-
		 stead	of  the	central	scheduler process, faxq.  The devid is
		 an identifier derived from the	name  of  the  modem's	device
		 file;	 for   example	 ttym2	for  /dev/ttym2,  term_10  for
		 /dev/term/10.

       -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.
