Modem configuration for Fax
I'm trying to get an internal fax modem to work as an actual FAX sending (and possibly receiving) device. (Intel Corporation FA82537EP 56K V.92 Data/Fax Modem PCI according to /etc/sysconfig/hwconf) . As it is, efax doesn't do a thing: can't find modem device, if I specify, e.g., /dev/ttyS1 it just hangs, etc.
While things like setting up a network (I'm on a LAN with 3 PCs on a cable modem) appears very simple due to a lot of fancy gui-driven configuration tools in either Fedora or Suse and other distros, there appears to be a real lack of "convenient" or at least functional software when it comes to setting up a modem for FAX.
So for a few hours now I've been trying to figure out how to make this work. I'm trying to use fax/efax/efix and the first problem is that there isn't a device /dev/modem. Nothing seems to be set up from the installation. So I have a lot of questions. What device should it be? One of these /dev/ttyS0 dev's? Which one? How to figure it out? What are the config files.
OkOk a little more systematic:
a) Is there a decent configuration tool available that would make this process easy as, e.g., changing the screen resolution? I'm running Fedora Core 6.
b) If not, what's a good start to figure this out? (Tell me which trees to bark up first, I'm not sure if I'm in the right forest. )
