Fax Line Update

These parameters provide the configuration information for a single fax line available to FMS to send and/or receive faxes. The parameters are explained below:

Fax Line Name - the name used within FMS to identify this fax line. By convention this name is in the form of fax-line- followed by a number starting at 1. You may choose any name that does not contain blanks or strange punctuation.

Device Name - the path name of the Linux (UNIX) special device file that specifies the communications port the fax modem is connected to

UUCP Lock File - the pathname for the lock file to be used to coordinate the sharing of the fax modem (both between the FMS send and receive daemons and, if needed, with other software using the modem). If the modem is dedicated to the exclusive use of FMS (the normal situation) then this path name can specify any unique name (i.e. /var/lock/LCK..ttyS0).

DO NOT USE THE SAME UUCP LOCK FILE NAME FOR MORE THAN ONE FAX LINE!

Fax Mode - whether this line is to be used for sending faxes, receiving faxes, both, or not at all.

Class 2 Type - the type of fax modem in use. Normally FMS will automatically identify the modem and this can be left as Auto. Setting this to match your modem type will slightly improve performance.

Modem Init Speed - the baud rate (speed) to use to initialise the fax modem. Do not change this from 19200 unless asked to by Faximum Support.

Modem Fax-Mode Speed - the baud rate (speed) to use when the modem is in fax modem. Do not change this from 19200 unless asked to by Faximum Support.

Line Type - the name for the trunk group that this fax line is part of. Used for advanced scheduling and least-cost routing when multiple lines exist. Do not change from default unless suggested by Faximum Support.

Modem Init String - the command string sent to the modem to intialise it. Do not change from ATM0S0=0S7=45&D2&C1 unless suggested by Faximum Support.

Number of Rings - the number of rings to wait before answering an incoming call.

Pulse Dial - the type of dialling to use (DTMF or "Touch Tone" is the default)

Station ID - the fax number to be sent during the handshake with the far-end fax machine for it to put in its log. Ought to be your organisation's published fax number (i.e. not necessaily the number for the phone line this fax line is connected to).

Remember that the changes you make to these parameters will not be stored until/unless you click on the Update button.
