Receive faxes using a non-Apple modem
Authored by: nobody on Dec 28, '04 03:26:57PM
I made a typo:
instead of
#now, link the hermstedt device to the ones used by the fax software
ln -s /dev/tty.ws_iiFAX /dev/cu.modem
ln -s /dev/tty.ws_iiFAX /dev/tty.modem
it should read:
#now, link the hermstedt device to the ones used by the fax software
ln -s /dev/cu.ws_iiFAX /dev/cu.modem
ln -s /dev/tty.ws_iiFAX /dev/tty.modem
You also could tweak /etc/efax.rc instead. However, if some softwareupdate from apple reverts your changes to that file, you have to restore it.
Placing a Script in /Library/StartupItems maybe is safer, since a OS install wont touch these Files.

I just edited the main hint, so the above correction is no longer applicable :)

I have used your script (I also use a Hermstedt ISDN modem) but now my internal mosem is not working any longer! Even after restart the computer... Is there a solution for that?
