LinuxExamples.com: Creating a low cost and reliable network fax server with Linux and HylaFAX

[ Thanks to Ian Castle for this link. ]

LinuxExamples has an article on the use of Linux with HylaFAX to create a low cost highly reliable network fax server. More of an overview than a tutorial, but useful information all the same.

"This article investigates the use of the HylaFAX fax server to provide a low cost, flexible and effective solution for an organization receiving around 30 faxes per day."

HylaFAX has proven to be a remarkably stable and effective fax server. Faxes are received reliably and in a way that is far more flexible than a traditional fax machine - received faxes printed to a laser printer are typically of a far better quality. Its "open source" nature allows the system to be tailored to work in the way that you want it to.

HylaFAX requires a low powered machine to operate with minimal IT support to maintain it. The only caveat is that it is worth getting the best quality fax modem that you can."
