Sorry, but what on Earth makes you think we would have any idea?

First of all, we are Samba users, and this question has nothing to do
with Samba.  It has everything to do with file formats and PostScript.

Second, we do not have a clue how your scripts work or what your
PostScript files look like.  We have no idea what software you are
using for sending the FAX.  While I think we might assume it is using
Ghostscript as its frontend, we don't know how Ghostscript is being
invoked or even what version you are using.

The first point is the more important of the two.  In short, your post
was offtopic.
