How to set up usb external modem with hylafax

Postby ratrace » 2017-08-23 13:57


i'm trying to install hylafax, so that i will be able to send and receive faxes.

I have us robotics external usb fax modem. As it mentions in the setup process, first i should connect the modem and then start the setup, which i did.

My problem is that in the question "Serial port that modem is connected to [ttyS0]?" i don't know what to answer. From a search that i did, i found that i can see the usb ports in my system by using the command lsusb. The result of the command above shows this,
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0baf:00ec U.S. Robotics 56K Faxmodem.

What should i answer to the question, about the serial port, to continue the installation?

I'm using debian stretch with gnome.

Maybe these links will help you.

First, a discussion of the difference between USB and ACM ... evttyacmx/

Then some discussion about specifically setting up Hylafax

It's been a long, long time since I used a fax modem, and that was on a true serial port.
