Publisher's Description of HylaFAX

" The world's most advanced open source fax server for UNIX system. "
- From HylaFAX Developers

The world's most advanced open source fax server.

HylaFAX is an enterprise-class system for sending and receiving facsimiles as well as for sending alpha-numeric pages.

The software is designed around a client-server architecture. Fax modems may reside on a single machine on a network and clients can submit an outbound job from any other machine on the network. Client software is designed to be lightweight and easy to port.

HylaFAX is designed to be very robust and reliable. The fax server is designed to guard against unexpected failures in the software, in the configuration, in the hardware and in general use. HylaFAX can support multiple modems and a heavy traffic load.

If you expect to send more than a few facsimiles a day, then HylaFAX is the fax package for you!

HylaFAX is a telecommunication system for UNIX systems. It supports:

* sending facsimile
* receiving facsimile
* polled retrieval of facsimile
* transparent shared data use of the modem
* sending alpha-numeric pages

Facsimile can be any size (e.g. A4, B4), either 98 or 196 lpi, and transmitted/received as either 1D-encoded or 2D-encoded facsimile data (2D-encoded data is frequently more compact and hence takes a shorter time to communicate). Any modem that supports one of the standard interfaces for facsimile operation can be used; i.e. any Class 1, Class 2, or Class 2.0 modem.

Outgoing documents can be any format; the sendfax program uses a rule-based definition file similar to the System V /etc/magic file to deduce document types and to decide how to convert each document to a form suitable for transmission (either PostScript or TIFF/F). Automatic cover page generation is supported and users can easily tailor cover pages to their environment. A simple text-based phonebook database is supported by the sendfax program. Information is also provided on how to trivially setup an email to fax gateway service.

Incoming facsimile are stored in a receiving area as TIFF/F (read "TIFF Class F") files and may be automatically delivered by mail and/or printed. A fax server status program, faxstat, can be used to monitor the send and receive queues, as well as the state of facsimile servers.

Fax modems are shared with outgoing data communication applications that honor the UUCP locking protocol. These applications typically include: cu, tip, kermit, uucp, slip, and ppp. The software can also be configured so that incoming data calls cause HylaFAX™ to invoke the standard system getty program.
