FAXLOCK(8C)							   FAXLOCK(8C)

NAME
       faxlock - tell a	HylaFAX	server to switch to LOCKWAIT state

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/sbin/faxlock [ -q dir	] modem

DESCRIPTION
       faxlock sends a message to a HylaFAX faxgetty(8C) process servicing mo-
       dem telling it to change	its state to LOCKWAIT

       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.

NOTES
       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.

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.
