b077:/opt/tiff-3.5/bin$ ./X11/xtiff /caddaten/BS/cadtransfer/cad/test2.tif

/caddaten/BS/cadtransfer/cad/test2.tif: Using 1-bit PseudoColor visual. TIFFFillStrip: /caddaten/BS/cadtransfer/cad/test2.tif: Read error at scanline 4294967295; got 72088 bytes, expected 72096.

That's scanline -1 in a 32-bit int.

Unfortunately i have no influence in generating these images, so i have to take what i get. Is there a way to read/view these files with libtiff? As viewers i tried gview, ImageMagick, xtiff and gimp which all depend on libtiff and all failed to open these files.

You might try viewfax too. It does not rely on libtiff, although it uses essentially the same decoder.

  ftp://ftp.ping.de/pub/unix/viewfax-2.5.tar.gz

It has a -v flag that may give some information about the input file.
