Re: [hylafax-users] faxrcvd : moving received fax to different dir

Is faxdaemon and uucp the same user?

I have added uucp to the group that have permission to write to the shared 
directory. I verified this by running faxrcvd as uucp on the command prompt 
and that works ok.

i would say it's a permission problem with the shared
remember that the faxdaemon should have the permission the
write to this directory.
