Re: [hylafax-users] Phone ringing during initilizing

I've noticed a problem when receiving faxes when most of the lines are
busy sending. The problem occurs while the modem is initializing and
the phone rings. The ring status messages seem to cause the
initialization to fail and then repeat. This keeps happening until
either the call hangs up or moves on to the next line. What I would
like to see is the initializing routing detect that rings
are occurring and switch to receive mode rather than just let the line
ring until the caller hangs up.
A fair amount of work has gone into making *faxgetty* capable of
initializing and receiving a call while the line is ringing... and it
*should* be able to do that.
However, the work for that on the faxgetty-end probably only complicates
things for faxsend... which now probably is getting all the way trough
the initialization and trying to place a call on a line where an
outbound call is coming in... at which point the call would probably
fail and by the time things were handed back over to faxgetty it
probably would be too late.
So the idea would be for faxsend to error-out very quickly, and
hopefully faxgetty would get re-initialized in time to handle the call.
But, my guess is that it wouldn't work reliably.
Better, I would suggest that a faxsend that detects an incoming call
could, if desired, quickly switch into the rarely-used "dialanswer"
feature after it completes the initialization.
In any case, its something that's going to require some code development
