Re: Page Width..Still a problem

>I have problems with "Page Width...", but the solution is not clear to me.
>Here is the script part which defined the paper size

The only thing I've changed in the ps2fax script right now is later down 
in the script I added paper=legal. I guess this just circumvents the case 
statement you listed. Look in the logs and tell me what the page width 
error says. If it mentions the fax wanting 1728 and image being 1734 then 
you should try the Aladdin GS 4.03. Also I think I had to change 
in the ps2fax script when I started using gs 4.03.

Now that you mention it I need to look at the case statement in ps2fax 
and see if I can adjust that to have a legal choice as well. That would 
certainly allow me to send both legal and letter under normal 
circumstances. Of course this isn't a big deal for me now since the 
client only wants Legal sheets faxed.

Share the wealth! Knowledge is power!

 Thanx all 4 you're help. Modem is now configured. First it was on COM3 
IRQ7 and cu worked ok. So i don't know where was the problem. I moved it 
to COM4 IRQ3 and now is working fine.
