Re: [hylafax-users] race condition

thanks for your thought all of you,

round-robin was something I'd already thought about but is unluckily not possible with eicon drivers at this time.

So I guess for a work around a "pause" as chris suggested would be a point to start. Anyway I don't know how to
configure hylafax to make such a "pause".

what would those config line changes do ? I guess
CallIDAnswerLength: 9
means answering after 9 digits received ? I'm located in germany and unluckily I can't count on fixed number length over here..

I'm certainly not a guru on this, but it has been my understanding that
the PRI D-channel design entirely makes it impossible to "pick up" a
channel for an outbound call that has an incoming call on it.  Now, if
you're dealing with E&M wink or robbed-bit or something other than PRI
... then I can see this "glare" condition as being entirely possible.

Maybe I'm wrong, though.
