Help with hylafax - faxing from a website form
« Reply #31 on: February 20, 2007, 08:38:52 PM »
I have a website that is on the same server as hylafax (SME 7.1)

The website has a form on it that needs to be faxed when it is completed.

How do I do this?

I thought it could be done by taking the form information and having
the form mailer simply send it to the test@5551212.fax address but this
does not work.

Any Ideas?

Carl

They have no idea how the SME server works, how about that! Anybody have an idea on how to send a email from a web page using the faxsender account? I have tried it and I got the email but it failed to send a fax. The guys over at Hylafax said I should ask here!

how smeserver works is irrelevant
hylafax and faxsender is setup as per the hylafax documentation

but as the bug says there may be problems with how it is implemented

Are you ok?

Steve, you sound a little angry - are you? I don't mean to offend but all I need to know is what would be an idea as to how to do this that's all. If Iam offending someone please let me know. I thought we share ideas here not terse answers. God forgive me if I have offened you or anyone else. Cheer up.

Your Friend Carl

Sorry Carl
The answers were just brief, nothing more was intended

But answering forum questions feels like the least productive use of my time so perhaps it would be better if I didn't

SME is based on Centos 4, which is based on RedHat Enterprise Release 4.  So ask on the hylafax forum how to make it work on Centos, then we can work to adapt it to SME 7.

Hey - you are needed here. How do you expect me to become 'smart' about the SME server if you think it is a waste of time.? You have made my day helping me to feel like I have helped make the Hylafax project worth while. You put the rpm together I did a lot of the leg work with the scripts and all, Stephen, I thank you for all you have taught me and I will remember. We (together) brought this project together and I for one thnak you.  God Bless

Carl

P.S. No it isn't a waste of time, you have helped to open my eyes.

Thanks John for helping. The real question was 'how do you send a email from an ibay to the fax software to have it (the server) send a fax?  ie:
i have web form on the primary site, I want to send the form information to the fax software and have Hylafax send it.  

I have tried a form email program and it doesn't seem to use the proper account to send the email - just uses a generic send.

My mind is shorting out and for the life of me cannot figure it out. I can get it to send the email but the fax part doesn't work.

OK, then I can't add any more to this.  I haven't downloaded and used the latest RPM  for this, I was just trying to follow this and the bug tracker info.  I still don't know why two users are needed , but will probably find the answer once I actually download and begin to try to use hylafax.  I would have that you could send it to test@5551212.fax as you already stated.  Is there a log file that could be checked to see if there are any errors when you send via your webform?

faxmaster is used because it easier not to have to change the existing references for who the incoming fax is to go to, you could just send to admin or any user

faxsender has a modified .qmail,
it can't receive ordinary mail, it instead pipes it to hylafax

if there is a better way to do this feel free to suggest it on the bug

Got an idea

an email using the .fax domain uses the faxsender account automatically
if your using test@5551212.fax and it doesn't work i have no other ideas
