Thanks Rainer,

The situation is I've got this dumb old cobol app sitting on one machine 
that prints through cups. I have defined one of the printers to print to 
the hylafax server on another server, problem is that there is no way a 
user can enter a fax number so either I need to do it with SambaFax who 
looks for a string and then guesses where to fax or write something up 
that prompts the user for a number. If I am to write something new it 
has to be character based, not graphical so if someone already did this 
please let me know. Perhaps I should look at what you did and try to 
figure out how to bring it to cups.

Then again I'm not a programmer at all so it would probably take me ages 
to figure out...
