Question how do I use my linux machine as a fax


Hi guys

I am running mandrake 10.1 and it is fullfilling all my needs accept one.

I need to send and recieve faxes.
I have an oldish external mecer modem. For internet and email it is fine, but I can't seem to get the config of Hylafax server to work.

Also I would like to make calls and recieve from my friends pc to mine over the telephone line. How do I make my machine accept calls?

can anybody help me.

regards

AFAIK, HylaFax is the most common open source solution for this.

how do I go about it?

I have tried Hylafax server.
it doesn't seem to get to my modem to dial. I have specified the proper com port which the same one that kppp uses to make my internet connection.
Kppp doen't seem to have a problem.

what else can I do?
