       faxconfig - dynamically change HylaFAX configuration parameters


       /usr/sbin/faxconfig  [  -q  queue-dir  ] [ -m modem ] [ parameter value
        ... ]


       faxconfig sends messages to a HylaFAX  server  process  telling  it  to
       install new values for one or more configuration parameters.  These new
       values are maintained only for as long as that server process executes;
       to   setup   long-lasting   configuration  parameters  the  appropriate
       configuration file(s) must be edited (see hylafax-config(5)).

       faxconfig  is  especially  useful  for  setting  certain  configuration
       parameters that control the operation of HylaFAX server processes.  For
       example, by manipulating the ModemPriority parameter  of  one  or  more
       faxgetty(8)  processes  it is easy to dynamically reconfigure the order
       in which HylaFAX will assign modems to outbound jobs.

       If no modem is specified with the -m option, then faxconfig  will  send
       messages  to  the  central  scheduler  process, faxq(8).  If a faxgetty
       process is to be contacted,  the  specified  modem  must  be  the  last
       component  of  the  character  special  device  filename  the  modem is
       attached to.

       Consult the hylafax-config(5) for the list of configuration  parameters
       that can be set with faxconfig.


       The following options are available:

       -m devid  Direct  messages  to  the  faxgetty  process  servicing devid
                 instead of the central scheduler process, faxq.  The devid is
                 an  identifier  derived  from  the name of the modem's device
                 file;  for  example  ttym2  for   /dev/ttym2,   term_10   for

       -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.
