Hylafax on Linux and Windows Clients

My objective is to use the Hylafax ( server from a network of Windows workstations running WHFC ( Right now, only one computer in the network has WHFC installed. I can get the connection to the Hylafax server but cant login. I understand I have to allow the Windows workstation (host) access to the Hylfax server, but I am having a problem grasping how to make it happen. All of the Windows workstations have private netowk IP's ( for example). Everyting is behind a ADSL Router (described below) connected to my ISP.

Below is a description of the network of computers I have in my office. This may help understand my situation.

ADSL line comes into a 3Com Office Connect Remote 810 ADSL Router with 4 Ports.
- Port 1 is a direct connection to a Apple Mac with a static IP (207.##.###.01) assigned.
- Port 2 is a direct connection to a Linux Red Hat 7.3 with a static IP (207.##.##.02). The Linux machine has Hylafax configured and running with a Perle 4 Port PCI RAS modem installed and working.
- Port 3 is connected to a Multitech Systems Routefinder which then connects to a set of routers and hubs for a 24 workstation Windows 98 network. This network has its own "server" - a Windows 98 workstation really.
- Port 4 is empty.

So, what should I look at first? Do I create another account on the Linux machine? Which IP address would go in the hosts.hfaxd file? I am
not sure what to do and would appreciate any help.
