I combined HylaFAX server together with SCALIX server on the same
hardware/server (Debian/Etch). Both of them works great.
But I have one issue:
there is option for email-to-fax-gateway. It works great (on other
machine withouth SCALIX server).
The problem is that HylaFAX server needs to receive email at
and the receive email is forwarded to perl script which then strip out
attachement, text and html component and invokes "sendfax" function.
But with scalix server SYSTEM user faxgw is unreachable. It is created,
but email never reaches it. In case that user mailbox is created with
SCALIX , system user mailbox is not reached again.
Invoking of the script is accomplished with placing this into faxgw home
Code: Select all
1. Create new user, e.g. faxgw, create .forward file in his homedir, and put there something like this: "|/var/spool/hylafax/bin/faxgw" (with quotes and pipe too)
2. create new file, /var/spool/hylafax/bin/faxgw, chmod it to -rwxr-xr-x , and put this perl script in there......
From this you can see what is problem:
file .forward is never reached and thus none of the following scripts in chain are not executed.
Now, the quesation is what I should d o in order to enable reaching of that crucial file?
