    Did you run faxsetup(1M) or faxaddmodem(1M) for this modem?
    Why do you *copied* it from the spool/config?
    [Alexandre Meissonnier]  As said above, I re-installed everything, and =
    had faxsetup and faxaddmodem do the configuration. The only thing I =
    changed manually is the ModemDialCmd to tell the modem not to wait for a =
    dial tone.
    Please enable the tracing level for the FIFO messages passed
    between the daemons=20
    [Alexandre Meissonnier]  How can I do this? I didn't find a config entry =
    for this.

read the man page of config(4F) and look for the parameter
ServerTracing and the value for "FIFO Messages".
you have also to configure the syslogd(1M) if not already done;
    . Please show your full
    /etc/inittab. Are there "off" lines for the label "fax" or
    other lines for /dev/tty2A or /dev/tty2a?
    [Alexandre Meissonnier]  Here are the significant lines. There are no =
    other lines for the label "fax".
    Se2A:234:off:/etc/getty -t60 tty2A 9600
    Se2a:234:off:/etc/getty tty2a m

please comment or remove the above two lines and re-start init with
a kill -HUP

    fax:234:respawn:/usr/local/HylaFAX-v4.0/slib/faxgetty tty2A
