SendPage - Parity options, where?

I am looking for assistance with getting paging to work with a provider whose paging terminal is 8 bits no parity. I have read in the archives that it is possible to hack the code to make this work but I did not find a reference with the actual code.

The following answer to my recent question about setting parity for pagesend was right on the money, thanks to Tom Szybist and thanks to others whose answers I may not have received yet.

I didn't cc the list because I haven't tried this but line 794 of faxd/pageSendApp.c++ has:

        return (ModemServer::setupModem() && setParity(EVEN));

I believe if you change EVEN to NONE that will do what you want.

Check out ModemServer.c++ for the setParity routine and ModemServer.h for values of EVEN, ODD, and NONE.

This table is also in ModemServer.c++ so that also gives me some confidence:

static const char* parityNames[] = {
        "8 bits, no parity",    // NONE
        "7 bits, even parity",  // EVEN
        "7 bits, odd parity",   // ODD

Hope that helps
