HylaFAX The world's
most advanced open source fax server
[hylafax-users] Some HylaFAX questions,
Hi every one,
Using Redhat 7.0 and hylafax-4.1beta3-1rh7.i386.rpm RPM.
Redhat is not an upgrade from previous versions.
I am also using a USR internal 28.8 modem.
I saw in some docs that this modem is supposed to be
installed as class 1 modem. Right now it is installed as
class 2.0. It works fine as far as I can see even in class 2.0.
I tried with class 1 but I can't send faxes any more. I could receive
faxes with class 1.
All the files related to Hylafax are stored in the default
directory: /var/spool/fax/bin or etc or config and so on.
also under /usr/share/fax/files
I have read man pages for ps2fax but when I want to use it
it gives me some error messages:
[root@shell bin]# ./ps2fax -1 /usr/share/fax/faxcover.ps -o newfile
FATAL ERROR: /var/spool/fax/bin/etc/setup.cache is missing!
The file /var/spool/fax/bin/etc/setup.cache is not present. This
probably means the machine has not been setup using the faxsetup(1M)
command. Read the documentation on setting up HylaFAX before you
startup a server system.
Then I realised that there is not such a directory as
/var/spool/fax/bin/etc/setup.cache so I created /bin/etc and I copied the
setup.modem and setup.cache from /var/spool/fax/etc/setup.* to that
Now when I issue the command ps2fax some file, it gives me some other
[root@shell bin]# ./ps2fax -1 /usr/share/fax/faxcover.ps -o new

What am I missing here?
Let's say if I want to send a MS Word file sometrhing.doc
file. How can I send it.
I tried but it gives me conversion error message.
How can it be done?
I don't have problem with pdf files or ascii files.
I beleive these files are converted to tiff files automatically by
