Just to make things a bit more varied, two more possibilities:
- Send the document as is to the fax print queue. Use a script as the
print command that sends a Winpopup message (via smbclient) to the
user, asking for the telephone number the fax should be sent to. The
user sends a winpopup message with the number back to Samba and
- Same as above, but instead of Winpopup use a little public domain
client program under Windows 95, available from
http://www.boerde.de/~horstf/. It asks (after being initiated from
the server) the number from the user and sends it back to the server.
