Hylafax Gentoo way

I'm still running a Lotus Notes LFS Fax server on Windows Workgroup 3.1. I've hoped Year 2000 would kill it, I hoped the p75 32Mb IBM PC would have died by now. But yet its still working! Dam!

Well the time has come to decommission it. Of course open source alternative can be found in Hylafax.

I've built my test server on a Gentoo distribution (2.6.8 kernel) on a Eversham Voyager, Celeron 800Mhz & 128Mb Memory. Modem is a 3Com Courier V.Everything 56K.

Will do the move over Christmas, pending a security risk assessment.

Expect the micro "how-to" section soon.

I haven't used hylafax before. Maybe it is good.
However, I have been using Joyfax Server for a long time and it is OK to me specially in receiving faxes in my email account.
