"HylaFax 4.0 is based on a client/server architecture that supports multiple fax modems and can even send messages to pagers using the Simple Network Paging Protocol (SNPP). We tested the version bundled with SuSE 6.3 because it also includes susefax, a Java-based GUI client for HylaFax."

"While the standard HylaFax interface uses command-line applications to control every aspect of fax jobs, there are also a number of friendlier clients available, like Jeremy Lublin's KHylaFax (http//owsley.further.com/~jlublin/khylafax/) for KDE."

"KHylaFax comes in source form, making installation slightly more complex than a binary program distributed in an RPM file. The results were worthwhile, though, and many KDE users will prefer the KhylaFax interface to susefax's. Setting up HylaFax for more than a basic configuration requires considerable reading, but it's nothing the average Linux system administrator can't handle. Users should have no trouble with the program once the client software is set up."
