I use the responder from
This is a windows client which will popup when a fax is sent and ask for
the recipients fax number and (optionally) the name of the sender and receiver.

The link between samba and faxspool is a perl script supplied there.
I did not get to work the version of the pearl script one year ago under
Solaris 2.5, so I wrote a C program doing this job. I know it to run
under Solaris and linux, and it should work on other systems as well.

Let me know if you need it.
