[hylafax-users] sendfax: "Can not determine file type"

Hello list,

I have installed hylafax-server hylafax-client and capi4hylafax
under Debian GNU/Linux "woody". The capi4hylafax*.deb is 
currently only avaible in Debian-unstable but I got an older
pakage, which is according to my libc.
On the hardware-side a AVM B1 card works in my server.

Now I want to set up Capi4HylaFAX and HylaFAX. The problems
looks as follows:

Sending and receiving facsimiles with c2fax* isn't a problem.

But sending faxes using sendfax returns error
"Can not determine file type". This error occurs, when I try
to send a .ps, a .tif or a .txt file, and even when I do like

# sendfax -d NUMBER
/tmp//[...]: Can not determine file type.

faxstat shows:

# faxstat -v
Trying localhost ( at port 4559...
Connected to CASSIOPEIA.local.lan.
220 CASSIOPEIA.local.lan server (HylaFAX (tm) Version 4.1.1) ready.

200 PORT command successful.

150 Opening new data connection for "status".
HylaFAX scheduler on CASSIOPEIA.local.lan: Running
Modem faxCAPI (): Running and idle

I can't use faxsetup, because it returns:
# faxsetup

Setup program for HylaFAX (tm) 4.1.1.

Created for i686-pc-linux-gnu on Fri Aug  9 14:19:12 UTC 2002.

Reading cached parameters from /var/spool/hylafax/etc/setup.cache.

Checking system for proper client configuration.
Checking system for proper server configuration.

Setting Ghostscript font path in /etc/hylafax/hyla.conf.

Make /var/spool/hylafax/bin/ps2fax a link to /var/spool/hylafax/bin/ps2fax.gs.

Make /var/spool/hylafax/bin/pdf2fax a link to /var/spool/hylafax/bin/pdf2fax.gs.

Update /var/spool/hylafax/status/any.info.

Modem support functions written to /var/spool/hylafax/etc/setup.modem.
Configuration parameters written to /var/spool/hylafax/etc/setup.cache.

Done verifying system setup.

So I can't input any data to faxsetup.

The SendFaxCMD in the "config" is already set and a
'faxmodem faxCAPI' doesn't help.

So, what can I do to use sendfax?
Unfortunately Google didn't help me.

Thanks a lot
