Hylafax and Salsafax


Hey guys,

In the company where I work they want a new faxserver.
So I installed Hylafax, this works like a charm.
The sendFax command works and the winPrint tool works to.
What I realy want is for users to print to the faxserver so they don't need to manualy type the fax number.
This brought me to Salsafax (formerly know as sambafax)

I followed this and thishow to.
The installation was no problem but when I try to test this with the
Quote:
lpr -P SalsaFax testFax
The script does not run.
In my cubs web portal, the print job says it's finished.

does anybody know what I did wrong?

quick summary of my settings:
openSuse 11
Cups
Hylafax and Salsafax + dependencies

UPDATE: the printer I added wrote the fax to my script file.
My URI had to be pipe:/usr/lib/cups/backend/salsafax.pl

OK Shadak, I am experiencing the same problem as you - the PERL script gets overwritten when using the lpr command. I am unable to use the -v pipe:/usr/lib/cups/backend/salsafax.pl option in lpadmin. How did you do it???

I had an evening of trouble too (CUPS 1.4.2 on FreeBSD 8.0). Finally this worked:

The big secret is in the:

That makes things work.
