    Question Faxclient

    Hi,

    I'm comming from win2000 environment and have just started to test and installed Linux. SUSE Linux is now finally running fine. I have installed Hylafax which also seems to work ok in the context as it sends and receive faxes. The faxes seem to end up in two directories one for send .../fax/docq and one for receive ... /fax/recvq which is only accesable as root user. Is there a client for Linux in which you can adimistrate the incomming and outgoing faxes and which also tell when a fax hav arrived something like WinFax in the Win2000 environment ?

    You can use YajHFC, it's a great and easy to setup fax client :-)

    Looks great , however as often a lot of things pops up to be solved.
    I installed at root user terminal using "java -jar yajhfc-0_4_1.jar"
    First info comes after loadFromProperties
    No settings to load
    it then choosed gnome-open output
    and
    gnu.inet.ftp.PassiveGetter run
    Now comes 6 number of warnings ,( "Socket closed" + a list)
    When I tried to open a received file I got an error.
    Admin ask for password (root didn't work)

    It looks as good tool though,
    Thanks

    The program needs no installation. Just run the jar file and that's all.
    Once launched, you need to setup some things (server to connect, programs
    to reviews faxes, user notifications, etc...).

    > First info comes after loadFromProperties

    Yes, that's because is the first run. Once you configure the program it will
    no longer prompt you again.

    You need to setup the program and connect to hylafax server, first.

    At server side (hylafax), review the file /var/spool/fax/etc/hosts.hfaxd.
    You have to put there the range of the ip addresses you are allowing to
    connect. Look what I have there:

    ***
    localhost
    127.0.0.1
    192.168.0.*
    ***

    The last entry (192.168.0.*) allows all my lan clients to connect with
    hylafax server and so use this program. After making any change in this
    file, restart hylafax service (rchylafax restart).

    > When I tried to open a received file I got an error.


    This is probably because you are not connected to hylafax server so cannot
    view the files.

    > Admin ask for password (root didn't work)


    Admin password has to be first configured in hylafax server, not this
    client. I don not use it, for instance. Admin mode will allow you full
    control to delete faxes from the client.

    > It looks as good tool though,


    It works pretty well... just give it a chance, it's very easy to setup :-)

    YajHFC works fine now after some premission adjustments. Unfortunately I'm not familiar with Java programming so I can't change the source code. I'm missing read/write/edit collumns for subject and name per sent and received fax. Is there a solution for this which I'm missing ?

    All available columns fields for sent and received faxes are under menu
    Extras / Options / Tables > Sent or Received. You can then select those you
    want to be visible for the main interface.

    Anyway, if you are missing any feature, you can contact the developer (it's
    a very nice person) and request him for anything you think it should be
    there :-)

    THT...
