FAXSTATE(8C)							  FAXSTATE(8C)

NAME
       faxstate	- control ``modem state'' of a device used by HylaFAX

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/sbin/faxstate	[ -q queue-dir ] [ -s state ] [	-n ] modem

DESCRIPTION
       faxstate	 sends a message to the	HylaFAX	faxgetty(8C) process servicing
       modem telling it	to use the specified state when	notifying the  HylaFAX
       scheduler  that a modem is ready	and available for use.	This is	useful
       for controlling outbound	use of a modem;	by marking a modem's state  as
       busy or down the	HylaFAX	scheduler will not assign any outbound jobs to
       the modem.

       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''.

       If the -n option, faxstate emulates what	faxgetty would do;  sending  a
       message	directly to the	faxq process marking the specified modem down,
       busy, or	ready.	This interface is useful for send-only environments in
       which faxgetty processes	are not	used.  Note that modems	manipulated in
       this way	must previously	have been  configured  with  the  faxmodem(8C)
       program.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -n	 Contact faxq directly instead of faxgetty.

       -q dir	 Use a spooling	area other than	/var/spool/hylafax.

       -s	 Specify  the state to send the	faxq process each time the mo-
		 dem becomes ready for use; one	 of  ``busy'',	``down'',  and
		 ``ready''.  The default state to use is ready.

FILES
       Consult	hylafax-server(5F)  for	a complete discussion of the structure
       and content of the spooling area.
