Both mgetty and sendfax can provide logfiles that can be very helpful for
debugging and accounting purposes. The amount that is logged is controlled
with the default set in policy.h and the command line argument
-x <level>. Higher numbers give more details.
At this place, I want to show you some typical cases, so you can compare your log files to those given here and check what is different.
(Note: naturally all the modem initializations, and also some of the modem responses, vary between modem brands!)
All the mgetty log files have been done with log level
L_MESG, that is,
-x 4. The sendfax log file was done with
|• log-mgetty-data:||mgetty log file, incoming data call|
|• log-mgetty-fax:||mgetty log file, incoming fax call (one page)|
|• log-mgetty-syslog:||mgetty logging to syslog|
|• log-sendfax:||sendfax log file, sending one page|
