HylaFAX The world's
most advanced open source fax server
Re: Cannot Receive Faxes
Thanks Nico for you help. You are right. Something did screwed up in the
config.cuaa2 file. But I have already over-written the old one with the
config/usr-rts. It is working now.
BTW, I am using FreeBSD and not Linux.
