Couple of questions. We currently receive DIFAX via satellite, do we have to make any other special arrangements to obtain DIFAX via IDD (other than LDM configuration).
DIFAX is available via the IDD from Alden by subscription only. There is a monthly fee for it. You need to contact Edie Arbetter (eda@xxxxxxxxx) to arrange for it.
netpbm compiled right out of the box using gcc-2.5.8. With this package installed at this point I'm figureing I need to add a line in pqact.conf to save the difax files and then once I'm able to move the files to the machine with netpbm is there a script or method to print these out on a HP4 (using postscript)?
There are netpbm utilities to convert the group3 fax files that the DIFAX is sent as to PBM files. From there you can convert directly to PostScript. mitch _______________________________________________________________________________ Mitchell S.
