NAME

       tsi - Transmission Subscriber Identification (TSI) access control list

DESCRIPTION

       The  HylaFAX configuration parameter QualifyTSI specifies whether or not the identity of a
       calling facsimile machine  should  be  checked  against  an  access  control  list  before
       receiving  facsimile.   If  QualifyTSI  is  non-null,  then  only  messages from facsimile
       machines identified in the file specified  by  the  string  (typically  etc/tsi)  will  be
       accepted.

       Patterns  are  specified  one  per line and must conform to the regular expressions syntax
       specified by  POSIX  1003.2;  see  re_format(7).   Comments  may  be  included;  they  are
       introduced with the ``#'' character and extend to the end of the line.  Any trailing white
       space on a line is ignored (for convenience when comments are used).

       If a line begins with ``!'', then the regular expression identifies clients that should be
       rejected;  otherwise  regular  expressions  identify clients whose transmissions should be
       accepted.  The order of patterns in a TSI file is important.  When a facsimile  is  to  be
       received,  the fax server will compare the client's TSI against the patterns in the access
       control list in the order in which they appear  in  the  file.   The  first  pattern  that
       matches the client TSI is used to decide whether to accept or reject the facsimile.  If no
       patterns match the client TSI then the facsimile is rejected.  Thus if you want to  accept
       all but a restricted set of TSI the last line in the file should be ``^.*$''.

       Note  that regular expression patterns should be written to match a TSI exactly.  That is,
       patterns should be of the form:
            ^<pattern>$

       where the ``^'' and ``$'' characters are used to specify the start and end of the matching
       TSI.   Additionally, regular expression patterns should handle white space that may appear
       in known locations.  For example,
            ^([+]1){1}[ .-]*415[ .-]*555[ .-]*1212.*$

       matches the following TSI strings:
              +1.415.555.1212
                  415  555  1212
              1-415-555-1212

       Finally, note that regular expressions can be used to specify many TSI with one pattern.

NOTES

       It would be nice if TSI that were to be matched against were placed in some canonical form
       (e.g. remove white space and white space-like characters).  This is, however, problematic,
       because some facsimile machines permit any printable ASCII string to be sent as a TSI.
