To begin with, I am running HylaFax in a Send-ONLY environment, and
will NEVER need to receive incoming faxes.
My problem is that each time a FAX is sent and I check the status of
the hylafax queue, it always seems to return the following infamous
Modem ttyS0 (<Line Number>): Waiting for modem to come ready
This is normal if you don't run faxgetty. Unless you have a specific
need to not run faxgetty you *should* run it even in send-only
situations (only set RingsBeforeAnswer to 0).
Usually, even with this status, my faxes seem to go through… However
about once or twice a day, it seems to lock up on me and the faxes
start to build up in the queue.
We've gotten this report before - about faxq "losing" modems. The issue
is somewhere in faxq, and if you want to continue to not use faxgetty
and you want to see this fixed, then we'll need you to set
SessionTracing to 0xFFF in /var/spool/hylafax/etc/config, and show us
some logging from syslog (FaxQueuer entries in /var/log/messages) about
The only command that seems to release this lockup is “faxsetup”.
After I run the “faxsetup” command again, my faxes begin to go again
until the next lockup…
faxsetup just is running faxmodem... so you could probably run faxmodem
instead of faxsetup.
Now I check the /var/log/messages file on my server, and noticed the
following errors appearing:
Dec 14 09:16:45 myserver HylaFAX: HylaFAX INET: Unable to init
server, trying again in 45 seconds.
Dec 14 09:17:30 myserver HylaFAX: HylaFAX INET: bind (port
4559): Address already in use
Dec 14 09:17:30 myserver HylaFAX: HylaFAX INET: Unable to init
server, giving up after 10 tries.
Does this always only happen when the faxq modem loss occurs?
