Re: Modem getting wedged
I'd reccomend running faxgetty anyway; apparantly HylaFAX (and you will get
flamed unless you capitalize it correctly :) is much happier that way. I
believe it can be configured to recognize (or ignore) incoming
If you're dead-set against running faxgetty, you need to (crossing my
fingers that I've remembered this correctly) run the faxaddmodem program to
inform HylaFAX that you have a non-faxgetty'ized modem for outgoing fax. I
think that doing this munges some of the status information - people report
their modems are perpetually "Waiting for modem to come ready"...
