    I am wondering if anyone else is using hylafax with vista x64 clients. I cant seem to find anything that will install without an error.

    Let me know if I'm doing something wrong.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    sorry but I couldn't resist.

    What you are doing wrong is using vista x64. :silly:

    i know, but with all the 3d that I am working with and the file sizes, having 16gb of ram on a quad core really helps out.

    Then possibly:

    a) One of the email2fax solution to be found in hylafax land.
    b) A cups, hylafax aware printer on the hylafax box using
    samba or an lpd socket connected to by your host machines.
    c) a samba shared folder on the hylafax box that the windows hosts can dump print jobs to.
    and a cron job running on the hylafax box that watches that folder and dispatches with sendfax.
    d) AvantFax

    all the above are limited in the files they can handle , largely pdf's tif's postscript files and plain text.
    b) and c) would need a little discipline to have the users mangle the file name to embed a legitimate fax destination in the name.

    d) would be my guess for you, easy to set up and easy to use.
