Set Servertracing to 0xFFF (man hfaxd) and look at /var/log/messages
for any errors. AFAIK, you have to restart HylaFAX and faxgetty to
enable it.
Each job is logged in two files: /doneq/qXXX and /log/c000XXX. There
might be any hints in these files, too.

After sending the PS file to HylaFAX, a file docXXX.ps.XXX should be
stored in /docq (if you are using STOT command). Try to open it in
ghostview (gv) to verify, that HylaFAX received the complete file.


Best Regards
Bodo
