Hylafax (v4.0pl2) doesn't seem to get along with the other services on
the modem line on a Sparc-20 running Solaris-2.6. The same modem (USR
Courier V-Everything) handles dialout PPP service, dialup uucp calls,
and (I hope) Hylafax for outgoing faxes. The three services coexisted
without complaint on our previous Sunos-4.1.3 setup.
The PPP and uucp get along fine. Hylafax will send faxes. But once
it has sent a fax, the other services break. Hylafax seems to leave
the port in a confused state that can only be fixed with a reboot.
The Hylafax documentation (setup.php) has a dire warning:
Be certain you are not running a ttymon with sac when using
HylaFAX. Disable all ports that are to be used by HylaFAX
with admintool or pmadm.
If I disable the ttymon on the port, it will no longer do dialout PPP
or dialup uucp. Is there a fix for this situation, or am I out of
luck on Solaris-2.6?
Thanks in advance for suggestions or fixes by direct email.
