Possible?  This is open source; of course it's possible.  How much do you
want to program?

You're gonna need, though, some utility similar to setserial (but not
setserial) that can "map" that network device to some /dev/<device> such
that you can communicate AT commands, as Jay has said, directly to the
device in some kind of terminal session like using minicom or cu.

Possible?  Yes.  Easy to do?  Well, that depends on how these "network
faxes" communicate on the network.

Best thing to do?  I assume that these network faxes have some direct
serial connector.  Run modular adapters and CAT5 cable directly from the
HylaFAX server's serial ports to that connector, then set up HylaFAX to
work with its own serial port.
