       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.
