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 aborted.

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 faxstat.

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 ``/docq/''.

-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 option.)

Whether or not to use passive mode in communication with the server.

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 variable.)

Verbose Control protocol tracing. (Equivalent to the -v option.)


Job %s removed. A confirmation that the job was successfully removed from the sendq

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.
