NAME

       faxrcvd - HylaFAX notification script for received facsimile

SYNOPSIS

       /var/spool/hylafax/bin/faxrcvd qfile devid commid error-msg [ callid-1 [ callid-2 [ ...  [
       callid-n ] ] ] ]

DESCRIPTION

       bin/faxrcvd is the command script invoked by the facsimile server whenever a facsimile  is
       received.   The  default script sends electronic mail to the FaxMaster user describing the
       content of the facsimile and other useful information such as the time spent receiving the
       document.  The arguments are:

       qfile     the  pathname  of  the  received  TIFF file relative to the root of the spooling
                 hierarchy.

       devid     the modem device on which the facsimile was received.

       commid    the communication identifier for the inbound call.

       error-msg an error message that is non-null if an error was encountered during the receive
                 operation.

       callid    the value of various identification indicators from the call

NOTES

       This  script  can route facsimile directly to the intended recipient.  To do this create a
       shell script etc/FaxDispatch in the spooling area  that  sets  SENDTO  to  the  receiver's
       electronic mail address.  For example,

       case "$SENDER" in
       *1*510*526*1212*) SENDTO=sam;;          # Sam's test rig in Berkeley
       *1*415*390*1212*) SENDTO=raster@asd;;   # 7L Xerox room, used for scanning
       *5107811212)      SENDTO=peebles@mti;;  # stuff from home
       esac
       case "$DEVICE" in
       ttyS1)            SENDTO=john;;         # all faxes received on ttyS1
       ttyLT0)           SENDTO=mary@home;;    # all faxes received on ttyLT0
       esac
       case "$CIDNUMBER" in
       435*)        SENDTO=lee; FILETYPE=pdf;; # all faxes from area code 435
       5059627777)  SENDTO=amy; FILETYPE=tif;; # Amy wants faxes in TIFF
       esac
       case "$SUBADDR" in
       53)          SENDTO=FaxMaster;;         # without double-notification
       roger)       SENDTO=roger;;             # possible text subaddressing
       esac

       Note  that you must match any embedded white space.  The facsimile will be sent as a MIME-
       encoded PostScript document as default.

       CALLIDn
              is equivalent to the nth call identification parameter

       CIDNAME
              is equivalent to CALLID2 above.

       CIDNUMBER
              is equivalent to CALLID1 above.

       DEVICE is equivalent to device above.

       FILETYPE
              controls the filetype of  the  image  attachment.   Current  filetype  options  are
              ``ps'',  ``tif'', and ``pdf''.  Multiple values may be specified by separating them
              with whitespace. In that case a separate attachment is created for each filetype.

       FROMADDR
              controls the sender of the received fax notification.  It is  given  as  an  e-mail
              address.

       MSG    is equivalent to error-msg above.

       NOTIFY_FAXMASTER
              (an  underscore  ``_'' character is between NOTIFY and FAXMASTER) indicates whether
              or not the HylaFAX administrator should be notified regarding  incoming  facsimile.
              Default is ``always''.  Also available are ``never'', which means to never send any
              received facsimile notification, and ``errors'', which means to  send  notification
              only if there were reception errors.

       SENDER is the received TSI of the fax sender.

       SENDTO controls  the recipient of the received fax notification.  It is given as an e-mail
              address, and it's value will be passed directly to the MTA for delivery as well  as
              being  inserted  into  the  email.   If you want to send to multiple receipients in
              seperate messages  set  the  variable  SENDTO1...SENDTOn  in  addition  to  SENDTO.
              faxrcvd  will  process  additional SENDTOn variables starting at 1, and stopping at
              the first empty SENDTOn variable  it  finds.   The  templates  should  continue  to
              reference  $SENDTO,  and  faxrcvd  will  make  sure  it  get's set correctly as the
              template is processed for each one.

       SUBADDR
              the received subaddress  value,  communicated  by  the  sender  for  post-reception
              routing purposes

       TEMPLATE
              the  template  subdirectory to use when sending e-mails.  HylaFAX ships with a base
              set of templates, and some direct  translations.   To  use  the  German  translated
              templates,  set  TEMPLATE=de in FaxDispatch.  This is relative to the base template
              directory.

       Other shell variables are available.  Consult the faxrcvd script directly.
