FaxRouter 0.05

Welcome to FaxRouter. I hope it will be useful to you.

Wasn't this called FaxMail?

Yes. However, to avoid confusion between Matt Davey's FaxMail and my scripts, I decided to rename to FaxRouter.

Quick Installation Instructions

Untar the faxrouter-0.05.tar.gz file, and run the configure.pl script:

    % tar zxvf faxrouter-0.05.tar.gz
    % cd faxrouter-0.05
    % configure.pl

This script will make sure that you have the perl modules you need, as well as a few other things. It will also tailor the distribution for your environment.

Review the selections the configure script made, by viewing faxrouter.cfg. Review all the options, and make any changes you need to make.

Now, as root, run the install.pl script:

    $ install.pl
