Defining custom Modem names

In YajHFC, you can define custom modems. This can be useful in one of the following scenarios:

  • You would like to give your modems custom names instead of the default HylaFAX names (e.g. "Company A" for ttyS0, "Company B" for ttyS1)
  • You would like to make HylaFAX modem groups selectable in YajHFC.

To define custom modems, do the following steps:

  1. In the options dialog go to the Modems panel for the desired server.
  2. Check the Use the following list of modems option.
  3. Add/Modify/Remove the modems in the table as you like.
    For example: Enter the description "Company X" for the Modem with HylaFAX name "ttyS0". there).
    To add a modem group here, add a new line to the table and enter the group's name as defined in the HylaFAX configuration as HylaFAX name (similar to the predefined any modem).
  4. Click OK. You should now be able to see the modems you have defined in the modem selection list of the send dialog.
