we've had good results with older Maestro 33.6 class2 fax modems. None
of the "late model" cheap modems worked for us reliably. our setup...
Mandrake8 server, 2x external class2 modems, divert-on-busy to second
modem, mgetty-sendfax.
our usage/results...1600 faxed pages over approx 3 months.
errors.... 4 or 5 /week with heavy use...both lines busy etc..
A script automatically converts incomming fax to a .jpg image and moves
it to a samba share, making it available to our wan and Xp clients.
System works great, the office staff are happy and all was well......
