[Solved]a Hylafax Client

I have setup a hylafax server and am able to both send and receive faxes. Now I am looking for a front to the server that will run on windows. I have played with two client so far, WHFC and yajHFC, I am not very impresses with WHFC, but I do quite like yajHFC with one minor exception. Although the function exists, saving the received TIFs as PDFs, I get a Java IO exception whenever I try to use this function. Here is the exception:
Code: Premature end of stream reading stdout from tiff2pdf (readLen=-1, buflen=-1).
	at yajhfc.file.TIFFLibConverter.convertToHylaFormat(
	at yajhfc.file.MultiFileConverter.convertMultipleFiles(
	at yajhfc.file.MultiFileConverter.convertMultipleFilesToSingleFile(
	at yajhfc.MainWin$SaveToFormatWorker.doWork(
Now to my question, does anyone know why this error is being thrown or another client I can use? If you are to recommend another client, here are a few things that are needed or wanted:
Must be able to see both the receive and send que within the program
Must be able to save the TIFs as PDFs from the client
Would like to have the program notify you when new faxes have been received
Thank you in advance.
