Re: [vox-tech] Mgetty-fax problems



What does your "mgetty.config" look like?  It looks like you need to add a
"fax-owner" option to specify the user that will receive the fax, and
without that option it defaults to a username specified at compile time
(but who knows what that is! -- check the debian manual?)  More info on
"mgetty.config":

There's probably more options to be concerned about, but I'm not sure what
else -- my experience with mgetty is unfortunately limited primarily to
working with voice modems.

BTW, do you know about the mgetty mailing list?  It's been a while since I
was on it, but it's really excellent:

If you need more seasoned help, I'm sure they'll be a great resource!
