I run Hylafax with a couple of ISDN Diva Cards, but it's probably similar...
Are the FaxGetty's running? If you do a "ps aux | grep faxgetty", then you
should see a faxgetty process running for each of your "lines", in my case
ttyds01 - ttyds16. I can remember a problem with these not re-spawning after
handling a call. I had to add:
lines in my /etc/inittab to get them to respawn.
If this doesn't work, give me a shout back and I'll bother my brain cells
some more to try and remember what else I've had to make it work.
