Mute Client from Command Line

I’m wondering if there’s any way to use the command-line to mute or unmute the client while in a meeting. When I run zoom --help during a meeting I get the following:

ZoomLauncher started.
Zoom not exist at current directory - /home/fortes
Zoom path is: /opt/zoom
cmd line: --help
CreateReportChannel bp_server_fd=4
$HOME = /home/fortes
export SSB_HOME=/home/fortes/.zoom; export QSG_INFO=1; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/zoom; export BREAKPAD_CLIENT_FD=3; /opt/zoom/zoom "--help"
zoom started.
Client: Breakpad is using Client-Server Mode! client fd = 3
Zoom is running, send message to it: --help
Exit zoom as another zoom instance is running!
success to create child process,status is 0.
zoom exited normally.
run zoom successfully,exit code is 0.
ZoomLauncher exit.

I tried adding other arguments instead of --help such as mute, etc. But nothing worked

Which version?


Device (please complete the following information):
Linux version 3.5.374815.0324
