NAME

       vboxbeep - isdn voice box (beeper)


SYNOPSIS

       vboxbeep [OPTION] [OPTION] [...]


DESCRIPTION

       vboxbeep  is a daemon, that watches several message directories. If new
       messages are found it will beep. Vboxbeep does not use  vboxd,  it  can
       only watch local directories.

       Vboxbeep is also used to stop this annoying beep.


OPTIONS

       Without  any  options, vboxbeep will signal an already running vboxbeep
       to stop its beep. Only root can start it as daemon.

       -s, --sound HOURS
              Hours to play beep signal. Use 24 hour format, like 0-23. Multi-
              ple  hours  can  be given separated by commas, a "*" is used for
              always, "-" for never.

       -m, --messagebox DIR
              Message directory to scan.  You  can  use  this  option  several
              times.

       -p, --pause SECS
              Time to wait between every check. Default is 5 seconds.

       -k, --kill
              Kill a running vboxbeep. This option can only be used by root.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       -v, --version
              Show version of program.


NOTE

       vboxbeep  will  only  work  if it is installed suid root. This may be a
       security hole, so many distributions do not install it suid  root,  and
       thus it’s useless. If you want to enable vboxbeep, please read the dis-
       tribution-specific documentation how  to  do  that  (e.g.  with  debian
       gnu/linux read /usr/doc/isdnutils/README.debian).
