       faxsetup - setup a machine for use with HylaFAX


       /usr/sbin/faxsetup [ -client ] [ -server ] [ -with-VAR[=value] ]


       faxsetup  is an interactive shell script that does the necessary setup work to configure a
       client or server machine for the HylaFAX software.  faxsetup must be run on every  HylaFAX
       server  machine before the software will function-if a HylaFAX server program or script is
       invoked before faxsetup is run, the command will abort with a message  that  says  to  run
       faxsetup.   faxsetup  may  optionally  be  run  on  a HylaFAX client machine to verify the
       configuration of the software.

       By default faxsetup checks a machine for use both as a HylaFAX client and server.  Client-
       specific checks include:

       ·  the installation of client programs and data,

       ·  the  installation  of the Adobe Font Metric (AFM) information files used by the HylaFAX
          text formatting support.

       Server-specific checks include:

       ·  the installation of server programs and data,

       ·  the existence of the UUCP lock file directory,

       ·  the installation of the TIFF software tools,

       ·  the configuration of the getty programs invoked for data and voice calls,

       ·  the pathnames for various system programs used by server shell scripts,

       ·  proper support for FIFO special files,

       ·  proper installation of a POSTSCRIPT RIP,

       ·  definition of a ``fax'' user,

       ·  definitions for the ``hylafax'' and ``snpp'' services,

       ·  startup of the HylaFAX server processes: faxq(8) and hfaxd(8),

       ·  definition of a ``FaxMaster'' mail alias for reporting server problems.

       For server machines faxsetup also creates two files  that  are  required  by  the  HylaFAX
       command scripts.  One file contains master configuration parameters and the other contains
       various definitions used by scripts such as faxaddmodem(8) that communicate with modems.


       -client   Do client-specific consistency checks.

       -server   Do server-specific consistency checks.

                 Override the default definition  for  the  configuration  parameter  named  VAR;
                 optionally  specifying  a  new  value  (if no value is specified then ``yes'' is
                 used).  This option is especially useful to override the  default  settings  for
                 the  POSTSCRIPT interpreter package to use (e.g. ``-with-PS=dps''), the spooling
                 directory  (``-with-DIR_SPOOL=/mumble''),   the   directory   where   the   tool
                 applications    of    TIFF   software   distribution   are   located   (``-with-
                 TIFFBIN=/usr/freeware''), etc.  A complete list of the possible  parameters  can
                 be  found by looking at the contents of the faxsetup shell script; many of these
                 configuration parameters are also described in the online documentation

       -help     Print a help message and terminate.

       -quiet    Do not print verbose messages to the terminal.

       -verbose  Print informative messages to the terminal (default).


       faxsetup does not query a modem to find out its capabilities when  invoking  the  faxmodem
       program  to  setup  a  server  in  a  send-only  configuration; it may be necessary to run
       faxmodem manually.


       /var/spool/hylafax/etc/setup.cache    master configuration parameters
       /var/spool/hylafax/etc/setup.modem    modem-related configuration support

       Consult hylafax-server(5) for a complete discussion of the structure and  content  of  the
       spooling area.
