HylaFax Server Install with iaxmodem I hope this is useful to somebody it can sure be done differently. This is basically what I did after banging my head for months trying to get faxing separated per client on a windows pc... I use vi editor if you prefer it install nano… 1. Install CentOS 5. I normally have to use a cd so I install nothing but the base install. This takes one cd if you are installing CentOS 5. I usually run a yum update, disable selinux, and a number of other things after installation. 2. Yum install some of the required dependencies. Code: yum install gcc ghostscript sharutils glibc-headers glibc-devel kernel-headers autoconf zlib-devel gcc-c++ libjpeg-devel mgetty-voice libtiff-devel 3 Download the rest of the dependencies. Download spandsp to /usr/src Code: cd /usr/src wget http://www.soft-switch.org/downloads/spandsp/spandsp-0.0.5.tgz Download Iaxmodem wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/iaxmodem/iaxmodem/iaxmodem-1.2.0/iaxmodem-1.2.0.tar.gz Download hylafax client and server wget ftp://ftp.hylafax.org/binary/linux/redhat/6.0.4/hylafax-server-6.0.4-1rhel5.i386.rpm wget ftp://ftp.hylafax.org/binary/linux/redhat/6.0.4/hylafax-client-6.0.4-1rhel5.i386.rpm 4 Extract archives Code: tar xvzf iaxmodem-1.2.0.tar.gz tar xvzf spandsp-0.0.5.tgz 5 compile spandsp and iaxmodem Code: cd /usr/src/spandsp-0.0.5 ./configure && make && make install cd /usr/src/iaxmodem-1.2.0 cd lib/spandsp ./configure && make && make install cd /usr/src/iaxmodem-1.2.0 ./configure && make cp iaxmodem /usr/sbin/ mkdir /etc/iaxmodem 6 Install Hylafax Code: cd /usr/src rpm -Uvh hylafax-client-6.0.4-1rhel5.i386.rpm hylafax-server-6.0.4-1rhel5.i386.rpm 7 Configure the iaxmodems Code: mkdir /etc/iaxmodem add one for each modem example iaxmodem-cfg.ttyIAX1 iaxmodem-cfg.ttyIAX2 iaxmodem-cfg.ttyIAX3 cp iaxmodem-cfg.ttyIAX /etc/iaxmodem/iaxmodem-cfg.ttyIAX1 vi /etc/iaxmodem/iaxmodem-cfg.ttyIAX1 Change the following for each modem. Each modem must have different device name device /dev/ttyIAX1 server elastix server ip peername iax extension on PBX secret iax extension secret save it in vi by typing :wq In my case I need like 15 modems to start. So I have 15 iaxmodem-cfg.ttyIAX configuration files… For each one of my modems.. Now it would be much easier to go into virtual faxes in Elastix and do this but, I had no luck getting the functionality working that I needed in a timely manner. In this case is keeping all faxes separate per windows client user on a terminal server of 20 or more users. Code: cp iaxmodem.init.fedora /etc/init.d/iaxmodem vi /etc/init.d/iaxmodem change any lines with /usr/local/sbin/iaxmodem to /usr/sbin/iaxmodem save it.. chmod 755 /etc/init.d/iaxmodem mkdir /var/log/iaxmodem start iaxmodem /etc/init.d/iaxmodem start vi /etc/rc.local add /etc/init.d/iaxmodem start Save it.. 7 Configure Hylafax Run faxsetup by typing faxsetup in command prompt Code: faxsetup Setup inittab Code: vi /etc/inittab add this at end. Add for every modem you want.. Code: # fax fax0:2345:respawn:/usr/sbin/faxgetty ttyIAX1 Add fax user. Add for every modem you want.. Code: faxadduser 5001 -p Password5001 useradd 5001 look at /etc/group get group 5001 group number Code: cat /etc/group will look this Code: 5001:x:500: we are looking for the second number 500 open hosts.hfaxd Code: vi /var/spool/hylafax/etc/hosts.hfaxd change Code: ^5001@::ry7YQ7j76876 to Code: ^5001@:500:ry7YQ7j76876 Save the file. Edit FaxDispatch Code: vi /var/spool/hylafax/etc/FaxDispatch add this to end of file Code: case "$DEVICE" in ttyIAX1) sudo chgrp 5001 $FILE;; esac Code: visudo Add line to bottom Code: Defaults:uucp !requiretty uucp ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /bin/chgrp This should change permissions so for the fax client I am using only the user will see it their faxes! Fax client here http://www.swt-online.de/hylafax/index_eng.html I usually reboot the server now… then test it. 8. Setup client and test server. You need to edit the mod.dll in the user profile in Windows. You put the uuid in the mod.dll file. The only problem with this is it is supposed to automatically set permissions on the faxes which is not happening. If I change them manually to the group it works..
