You need to be root or the uucp user to write to the hosts.hfaxd file,
unless somebody has setuid the executable(don't do this, it is a very bad
If it still does not work, try running strings on the faxadduser executable
and grep for hosts.hfaxd to find the location where faxadduser expects the
hosts.hfaxd file to be.
$ whereis faxadduser
$ strings /usr/sbin/faxadduser | grep hosts
faxadduser [-a admin-password] [-f hosts-file] [ -p password] [-u uid] username
Error - cannot open hosts file: %s
If it is different from where hosts.hfaxd actually is(this should NOT be!)
use the '-f' param to specify the host.hfaxd file that you want to change.
