Set the Highest Transmission Speed to be Attempted

$baud_max line baud

This command is provided principally so that hardware capable of high baud rate transmission can be held back to for example 14,400 or 9,600. This saves the time taken in attempting to negotiate a V.34 transmission when you expect that most receiving machines are not capable of this rate.

This command can be overridden for a specific application by using a $baud_max command in the user profile or with a MAX_BAUD or STEPDOWN_BAUD variable or Max Baud Action Code.

CopiaFacts does not prevent you from setting the maximum baud rate to be less than the minimum baud rate. If this is the case on a system supporting both commands, all faxes will fail.

The parameters on this command are used as follows:

line the line number or line group(s) affected, or * for all lines. The same line must not be specified more than once.
baud maximum rate, a multiple of 2400 up to 31200.

Default: CopiaFacts attempts to send the fax at the highest rate supported by the fax board.


$baud_max * 9600 ; do not attempt 14400 or above on any line
