Subject: Re: No regular expression for modem class?
Howdy, After having just waded through the source code of this area, I know for a fact that you are using the ModemClass paramater INCORRECTLY. Read man 4 config to find out about the ModemClass. It does not define the Fax Class of the modem. It is used to group modems together, so that jobs can be targeted for a specific group of modems. The correct syntax would be: ModemClass: "any: tty[0-1]" This would set the default fax modems to use for any job to be tty0 and tty1. If you had any other modems defined in hylafax, they would be ignored for outbound fax usage.
