HP FAX solution

What are other people using for FAX ?

Our company is looking for a UNIX based fax solution for both incoming and outgoing faxes.
The solutions needs to be routable from a character base terminal interface outbound and routed incoming by sending location with aditional information added for tracking.
This needs to be centralized and distributed to the whole United States. (WAN in place) to display, print and store.
I've looked at Hylafax and it will do most of what I need but need a beter interface to a larger volume than modems will provide. Say 50 faxes per hour.

HP used to sell a product called MPower which included a fax solution. The fax part was obsoleted back in 1996. HP sent out a letter to MPower customers with a list of 3rd party fax and scanner products. Here is the list. (I don't know how many of these products still exist.)

Re: HP FAX solution

Sorry folks for abusing your thread for a wee experiment.

See if this gives me a working link to a
site well worth visiting?

same link
using external JS func.

In case this didn't come out as I wished,
could anyone of the ancestral posters reveal me the trick to post working links here?
