Answerphone and fax functions




Hi

The killer app I need to switch to Linux for good, and forget about dual-booting is an answerphone and fax program.

I'm currently using Redhat 8.0, and my modem is a pci Winmodem: it's a Conexant RH56D/SP-PCI R6795-11.

I only require basic functions such as the software to answer all calls, play a recorded greeting to voice calls and take message, or if fax, receive fax, and send fax capability.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks

Welcome to LQ.

First thing first, you should make sure that your modem works under Linux. There's a reason that it's called a WINmodem.

Once that's sorted, you could check out sourceforge.net and look for vgetty. VGetty is a server(let) program that receives audio info from your modem. There are a number of frontends (gui or otherwise), so have a quick look.

Good luck.
