Re: [hylafax-users] initauthconf Problem

Quoting Lee Howard <faxguy@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>:

The hfaxd daemons run in a chrooted environment. /etc/auth.conf would refer to /var/spool/hylafax/etc/auth.conf.

That's why I created the sym-link, but creating an actual file does nothing as well.

However, I have no idea what auth.conf is. I'm guessing it's some FreeBSD customization in the port.

I didn't install it via. ports. I did a good 'ol ./configure make make install

The interesting thing is that I cannot upload to certain directories, /sendq and
/tmp even though the perms are the same. Is this normal or am I just doing the
wrong ftp commands?
