NAME¶sendpage - listen for pages via SNPP, and send pages via modem
SYNOPSIS¶sendpage [OPTIONS] [recipient ...]
- Start sendpage in "daemon mode" where it will start all the Paging Central queues and wait for pages to be delivered. When sendpage runs as a daemon, it must be running as the 'sendpage' user as specified in the sendpage.cf file.
- Display all the pages waiting in the Paging Central queues.
- Try to expand the "recipient" name, using the recipient aliases specified in the configuration file.
- Shutdown the running sendpage daemon and all its children. If a Paging Central is in the middle of delivering a page, it will finish up and exit as soon as its current page is handled.
- This will send a SIGHUP to the master daemon. When the master gets the SIGHUP, it will re-read its configuration file, and restart all the Paging Centrals. It will wait for any busy Paging Centrals to finish before continuing.
- This displays the state of the running daemons: Running or Not running. If a pid file is stale (the file exists, but the process doesn't), it will mark that pid as "Stale".
- -q[R pc]
- This will send a SIGUSR1 signal to either the master daemon, or, if the Paging Central is specified, just that Paging Central in particular. When the master gets a SIGUSR1, it will send it to each of the running Paging Centrals. If the Paging Central is not busy, it will immediately start a queue run.
- -C FILE
- Read the configuration file FILE instead of the default /etc/sendpage/sendpage.cf
- Display a summary of all the available command line options.
- Turn on debugging (like "debug=true" in /etc/sendpage/sendpage.cf)
- -f USER
- Show that the sent page is coming from USER. Default is the current user.
- -m MESSAGE
- Send the given MESSAGE instead of reading text from stdin.
- Do not notify the 'from' user about the status of the page.
DESCRIPTION¶Sendpage can run as the delivery agent, or as a client to insert a page into the paging queue. For the various command-line arguments, the idea here was to use sendmail-style arguments where I can, not to fully implement every option that sendmail has. I just want the learning curve of sendpage to be small for people already familiar with sendmail.
- Default location for sendpage.cf, which holds all the configuration information for sendpage, including Paging Central definitions, recipients, and various other behaviors.
- Default directory for all the Paging Central queues and pid files.
- Default directory to keep the UUCP-style device locks.
