HylaFAX The world's
most advanced open source fax server
[hylafax-users] access denied
Dear Hylafax users,
I work with a linux SuSE 8.1 and use Hylafax to send facsimile
with medical results. It gives very good results, but its report
(faxstat) does not match our requirements.
So, I've written a bash script to print out the report as wanted.
To do that I need to search/read some Hylafax files and directories
with the find command.
It works fine if the user has logged in as root or if the script is
submitted by cron for root.
When this is not the case I get the message
find : /var/spool/fax/doneq permission non accordée (access denied)
To try to solve this problem I've issued following commands
chmod a+rwx /var/spool/fax/doneq
ls -ald /var/spoo/fax/doneq
gives drwxrwxrwx 2 uucp uucp 4096 Mar
chmod a+rw /var/spool/fax/doneq/*
ls -al /var/spool/fax/doneq/*
gives -rw-rw-rw 1 uucp 60002 796 Mar 10
The problem is that the next document sent by Hylafax that is stored
in /var/spool/fax/doneq will not have theses protections but
-rw------ so that access will be denied to the next find command.
How is it possible to read/search files in /var/spool/fax/doneq, sendq, ...
without having access denied ?
I haven't found any solution at this clue so I submit a chmod command
every 2mn with the help of cron (!)
Should Hylafax run under a user id ?
Should other directories of Hylafax have protections rwx for
Should the shell script contain special directives to allow root access
find command ?
Thanks for any help
