Q230: How does sendfax -a time work?
Got something to say about this answer?
Hit the question mark to invoke the mailer and

why does sendfax -a not schedule the fax correctly?
The time is processed internally in GMT/UTC only.
-> Timezone of Server OS must be set correctly
(on suse you just use yast to set the timezone)
- date -u must give GMT/UTC
- date must give time in local timezone
HylaFAX hfaxd accepts time from client in GMT only
Client must convert local time to GMT before sending time to hylafax!
-> Timezone of Client OS must be set correctly
otherwise client will not be able to make this conversion.
Have a look at sendfax -vv -n -a HH:MM -d 12345 file
There must appear JPARM SENDTIME yyyymmddhhmm
yyyymmddhhmm is HH:MM converted to GMT (by sendfax client)
HylaFAX hfaxd reports time in GMT/UTC or your local timezone to its client
Client can ask hylafax for translation of timezones (or not)
- see faxstat -s
- see faxstat -sl
There is also a y2k issue on older HylaFAX releases where the fax
is scheduled one day to late if scheduled after end of Feb 2000.
