faxing

P: n/a
Hi,

I was just wondering if anyone knows if its possible to set up some sort
of remote faxing server using PH P & apache. If not, any other prog
languages or server technologies? I know .NET can do it by using the
windows faxing service but i am looking for an alternative.

Cheers

what platform/OS are you wanting to use? It has been a very long time since I
trudged through the inter-workings of the fax machines...

Apparently there are FAX services that interface with PHP (and a whole lot more)
that allow you to send things through email that end up on a fax machine.
Google: php fax

Alternatively, you can look into deploying HylaFAX on Linux:
