       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
                 -h option.)

       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.
