faxquit - tell a HylaFAX server to terminate
/usr/sbin/faxquit [ -q queue-dir ] [ modem ]
faxquit sends a message to a HylaFAX server process telling it to quit
If modem is specified, the faxgetty(8) 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
particular the faxq process will not exit until any active jobs are
completed; this is necessary for proper operation (faxq must wait for
child processes to terminate so that it can collect their exit status
and update the state of the jobs being operated on).
-q dir Use a spooling area other than /var/spool/hylafax.
/var/spool/hylafax default spooling area
/var/spool/hylafax/FIFO fifo for contacting faxq
Consult hylafax-server(5) for a complete discussion of the structure
and content of the spooling area.
