FAXQUIT(8C)							   FAXQUIT(8C)

NAME
       faxquit - tell a	HylaFAX	server to terminate

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/sbin/faxquit [ -q queue-dir ]	[ modem	]

DESCRIPTION
       faxquit	sends a	message	to a HylaFAX server process telling it to quit
       operation.

       If modem	is specified, the faxgetty(8C) process servicing the specified
       modem  is  notified.   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''.

       If no modem is specified, faxquit will send the request to the ``FIFO''
       named pipe file causing the HylaFAX queue manager process to terminate.

       Note that server	processes may not terminate immediately.  In  particu-
       lar the faxq process will not exit until	any active jobs	are completed;
       this is necessary for proper operation (faxq must wait for  child  pro-
       cesses to terminate so that it can collect their	exit status and	update
       the state of the	jobs being operated on).

OPTIONS
       -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.
