faxrm - remove a HylaFAX job or document from a server
faxrm [ -a ] [ -d ] [ -v ] [ -h hostname ] id...
faxrm removes one or more jobs or documents from a HylaFAX server. If
a job that is to be removed is being processed by a server, it is first
An id is either a number that identifies a job (default) or, if the -d
option is specified, a document pathname. Job identifiers are printed
by sendfax(1) when jobs are queued for transmission; they can also be
displayed with faxstat(1). The names of documents associated with
outbound jobs can be seen by supplying the -f option to faxstat.
Documents in the receive queue can be viewed with the -r option to
Unprivileged users can only remove jobs or documents that they own.
Clients with administrative privileges can remove any job or document
(see the -a option below). The user name may be specified by the
FAXUSER environment variable.
-a Use administrative privileges; faxrm will prompt for the
password to set administrative privileges.
-d Interpret each id as a document pathname. If a pathname does
not begin with ``/'' then faxrm automatically prepends
-h host Contact the server at the specified host. The host may be
either a symbolic name or a network address. If no server is
specified then If no -h option is supplied, faxrm uses the
FAXSERVER environment variable to identify the HylaFAX server
to contact. If this variable is not set, then faxrm checks
for a setting in the configuration files (first in the per-
user file and then in the system-wide file). If all of the
above fails, then faxrm attempts to contact a server on the
machine where it is run.
-v Trace the protocol messages to and from the server.
faxrm reads configuration information from the file
/etc/hylafax/hyla.conf and then from the file ~/.hylarc. Configuration
files follow the conventions described in hylafax-client(1). The
following configuration parameters are recognized:
Tag Type Default Description
Host string localhost host to contact for service
PassiveMode boolean false whether or not to use passive mode
Port integer 4559 port to use in contacting server
Protocol string tcp protocol to use in contacting server
Verbose boolean No whether or not to enable protocol tracing
The configuration parameters are explained below:
Host The host to contact for service. (Equivalent to the -h
Whether or not to use passive mode in communication with the
Port The network port to contact for service. (Equivalent to the
Protocol The name of the communication protocol to use when contacting
a server. (Equivalent to the FAXSERVICE environment
Verbose Control protocol tracing. (Equivalent to the -v option.)
Job %s removed. A confirmation that the job was successfully removed
from the sendq directory.
Job %s removed (from doneq). A confirmation that the job was
successfully removed from the done directory; the directory where jobs
are placed once they are finished.
%s removed. A confirmation that the document was successfully deleted
from the server.
