Setup a machine for use with \*(fx
/usr/sbin/faxsetup [ -client ] [ -server ] [ -with-VAR[=value] ]
faxsetup is an interactive shell script that does the necessary setup work to configure a client or server machine for the \*(Fx software. faxsetup must be run on every \*(Fx server machine before the software will function-if a \*(Fx server program or script is invoked before faxsetup is run, the command will abort with a message that says to run faxsetup. faxsetup may optionally be run on a \*(Fx client machine to verify the configuration of the software.
By default faxsetup checks a machine for use both as a \*(Fx client and server. Client-specific checks include:
the installation of client programs and data,
the installation of the Adobe Font Metric (\s-1AFM\s+1) information files used by the \*(Fx text formatting support.
Server-specific checks include:
the installation of server programs and data,
the existence of the \s-1UUCP\s+1 lock file directory,
the installation of the \s-1TIFF\s+1 software tools,
the configuration of the getty programs invoked for data and voice calls,
the pathnames for various system programs used by server shell scripts,
proper support for \s-1FIFO\s+1 special files,
proper installation of a \*(Ps \s-1RIP\s+1,
definition of a ``fax'' user,
definitions for the ``hylafax'' and ``snpp'' services,
startup of the \*(Fx server processes: faxq(8) and hfaxd(8),
definition of a ``FaxMaster'' mail alias for reporting server problems.
For server machines faxsetup also creates two files that are required by the \*(Fx command scripts. One file contains master configuration parameters and the other contains various definitions used by scripts such as faxaddmodem(8) that communicate with modems.
Do client-specific consistency checks.
Do server-specific consistency checks.
Override the default definition for the configuration parameter named VAR; optionally specifying a new value (if no value is specified then ``yes'' is used). This option is especially useful to override the default settings for the \*(Ps interpreter package to use (e.g. ``-with-PS=dps''), the spooling directory (``-with-DIR_SPOOL=/mumble''), the directory where the tool applications of TIFF software distribution are located (``-with-TIFFBIN=/usr/freeware''), etc. A complete list of the possible parameters can be found by looking at the contents of the faxsetup shell script; many of these configuration parameters are also described in the online documentation
Print a help message and terminate.
Do not print verbose messages to the terminal.
Print informative messages to the terminal (default).
faxsetup does not query a modem to find out its capabilities when invoking the faxmodem program to setup a server in a send-only configuration; it may be necessary to run faxmodem manually.
