Convert Incoming Faxes to PDF on Linux

Wrap an incoming fax in PDF and deliver it by email.

Before PDF and before email, we had fax. Today, we still have fax. Integrate fax with your 21st-century lifestyle using HylaFAX. HylaFAX turns your Linux box into a fax server. For details, visit http://www.hylafax.org and http://www.ifax.com. Here, we discuss configuring HylaFAX so that it will deliver incoming faxes to a given email address as a PDF attachment.

Install the HylaFAX server package from your favorite Linux distribution. During installation, a FaxMaster email alias should be created that points to the user responsible for maintaining the server. In this hack, all incoming faxes will be emailed to the FaxMaster as PDF. After installation, run faxsetup -server.
