HP All-In-One Fax -> Gemeinschaft 5

Submitted by admin on Sa., 15.04.2017 - 10:16

Mit der Gemeinschaft 5 TK-Anlage und einem HP Enterprise Oll-In-One Laserdrucker lassen auch FAXe vom Drucker aus verschicken. Dazu muss auf der GS5 Installation lediglich der proftpd aus dem Debian Repository installiert werden.


Die proftpd.conf soll nur authentifizierte User rein lassen, daher muss an der Debian Default nicht geändert werden.

# /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf -- This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file.
# To really apply changes, reload proftpd after modifications, if
# it runs in daemon mode. It is not required in inetd/xinetd mode.

# Includes DSO modules
Include /etc/proftpd/modules.conf

# Set off to disable IPv6 support which is annoying on IPv4 only boxes.

# If set on you can experience a longer connection delay in many cases.

# Logging onto /var/log/lastlog is enabled but set to off by default

# In order to keep log file dates consistent after chroot, use timezone info
# from /etc/localtime.  If this is not set, and proftpd is configured to
# chroot (e.g. DefaultRoot or <Anonymous>), it will use the non-daylight
# savings timezone regardless of whether DST is in effect.

Die exec.conf ist der einzige, interessante Teil der proftpd Konfiguration.

Der HP Drucker lädt die FAX Files einfach per ftp hoch, der muss der proftpd nur auf entsprechende Ereignisse reagieren.


Dieses Skript macht die eigentliche Arbeit, es analysiert das Meta File vom HP Drucker und schickt auf Basis dieser Daten das FAX raus. Soweit möglich, wird auch T.38 unterstützt.

HP Drucker

Auf dem HP-Drucker muss ein LAN-Fax-Dienst eingerichtet werden, wobei "Auf FTP-Server speichern" die richtige Option ist. Ansonsten sind nur noch die Angaben zum Server, User und Passwort zu machen. Der "FTP-Verzeichnispfad" bleibt leer.
