Okay, so it's something else.
then you may want to try sending to this destination at 4800 bps and
see if it goes through. If it does, then maybe the V.29 modulator
is broken if you can't ever fax with V.29 to anywhere. You can
disable V.29 with HylaFAX, if needed.
How is this done?
To send at 4800 bps use the 'sendfax -B 4800' option.
To disable V.29 you have to force the Class1TMQueryCmd and
Class1RMQueryCmd options. See 'man hylafax-config' for details. You
should try the sendfax option first, though.
Do you have this trouble sending to all destinations or just this one?
In answer to the last question: I don't know, I haven't had the chance
to try sending to different destinations.
I don't think 'sendfax -B 4800' is going to work for us, as everyone is
using Windows machines and I plan to have them send through WHFC. Asking
them to run a SSH session and enter text on a command line just won't work.
So I'd like to try the other option, that is, get hylaFAX to avoid the
higher speeds. Forgive my density, but I looked at 'man hylafax-config,'
and I just don't understand what is meant by "force the Class1TMQueryCmd
and Class1RMQueryCmd options." What is being "forced" here? The default
setting of AT+FTM=? is what is listed in the modem documentation for
querying the transmit speed, and explicitly giving this default value in
the modem config file has no effect. On the other hand, if you replace
the ? with a number (i.e., 48 which corresponds to 4800 bps), then this
is the command for setting the transmit speed.
But if I do this, hylaFAX won't initialize the modem. var/log/messages
shows an ERROR . The modem returns "OK" in response to the speed being
set when hylaFAX appears to be expecting a comma-delimited list of
possible speeds in response to its inquiry. Then it sits there in an
infinite state of "Waiting for modem to come ready."
I am clearly missing something here.
