HylaFAX

HylaFAX is a fax and paging system for Unix. It supports sending facsimile, receiving facsimile, polled retrieval of facsimile, transparent shared data use of the modem and sending alpha-numeric pages. The software is structured around a client-server architecture. Fax modems may reside on a single machine on a network and clients can submit outbound jobs from any machine that can communicate with the machine on which the modems reside. An access control mechanism is included to control which users on which machines may access a server.

            I'd reccomend getting a US Robotics V.Everything. It will do anything you ever want a modem to do -- you can pick them up (the EXTERNAL model) off ebay for pretty cheap

            Internal Modem/TA
            HylaFax is great, sure. But if you give a glance to the modem list?
            Anyone is using HylaFax along with internal ISDN TA (or just common modem) with Linux (2.2.x or 2.3.x)? Can you suggest some model? This is quite important for me...
