>Could someone tell me what HylaFAX provides over FlexFAX?
It's obvious, of course - the letter "h" is ahead in the alphabet of "f" :-)
But seriously, it's really the same software, just a new name (turns out
FlexFAX was a registered trademark).
Off the top of my head -
- Greatly improved queueing system. There's now a central queueing process
that farms jobs out to individual modems more efficiently (which only really
matters if you have more than one fax modem)
- Support for time-of-day restrictions and priority-based queueing.
- Support for Caller-ID and distinctive ring (if the modem supports it).
- Preliminary support for alphanumeric pagers via the IXO/TAP protocol.
All in all, it's a hell of a lot better the the last beta release!
