Re: questions on modemclass, where and how
Hi Josh :
It's me again !!
I also configured modem class in my system. I partitioned my modems
for different groups of users for sending FAX. Here is what you can do :

Now if you want to send fax using any modem in 'GroupA', you can issue the
following command :
sendfax -h 'GroupA@FaxServer' -d...........
Sorry I don't have any experience on WHFC. For inbound is simple, you
may just hide you outbound FAX numbers from the users.
