Re: questions on modemclass, where and how

Hi Josh :

   It's me again !!

   I also configured  modem class in my system. I partitioned my modems
for different groups of users for sending FAX. Here is what you can do :

   Suppose you have modems cua_a , cua_b , cua_c , cua_d and cua_e. Now
you want to partition the modems into 2 groups. You can add the following
2 lines into the file 'config' (which should be in the same directory of
config.cua_b) :

   ModemClass:		"GroupA:cua_[abc]"
   ModemClass:		"GroupB:cua_[de]"

Now if you want to send fax using any modem in 'GroupA', you can issue the
following command :
   sendfax -h 'GroupA@FaxServer' -d...........

Sorry I don't have any experience on WHFC. For inbound is simple, you
may just hide you outbound FAX numbers from the users.
