Found other 3 parameters
Authored by: wallybear on Oct 08, '04 11:35:54AM

While desperately seeking for disabling by default dial tone detection, I've discovered these other 3 options:

-o faxWaitForDialTone=false/true
-o faxUseSound=false/true
-o faxToneDialing=false/true

The first one does what I was looking for. It works from command line, but does not work as a key in prefs.

You can do it by hand or using the defaults command:

defaults write /Library/Preferences/ modemInit-j X3

Finally I'll stop getting mad for having to disable it from the print panel every time I send a fax (it does not remember the setting).

This key will force disable Dial Tone detection, also if you see it enabled in the print panel.
