Thank you Lewis. This package works great.

Just one thought. You might want to change the faxd script so that it only emails or prints successfully received faxes. It can be kind of annoying to keep getting email with just the log saying that the fax was not received.

After using it for a week or so I did realize the unsuccessful faxes could be annoying. However I was sort of torn between the knowledge that a fax was not successful which also applies to regular phone calls that are not faxes a all and not knowing anything if a true fax was not successful.
One way around the problem is to configure it so the log is not sent by setting the EMAIL_LOG=0 and the second way around the problem is a simple edit of the /pkg/sbin/faxd script.

edit /pkg/sbin/faxd
Code: Select all
 # find this line
   [ $EXIT = 4 ] && continue
# Change it to this
   [ $EXIT = 0 ] || continue

rc_efax restart


However as I made the script and I find it sort of annoying. I am going to use the second solution and re-package it.
