In my cgi-bin/fax directory, I have the followinf permissions set:

[trymes@biff fax]$ pwd
[trymes@biff fax]$ ls -l
total 32
-rwsr-sr-x    1 root     root        13653 Sep 24 10:11 smbfax-html
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         1302 Sep 24 10:11 smbfax-html.c
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        10329 Sep 24 10:07 smbfax-html.pl
[trymes@biff fax]$

I tried setting smbfax-html.pl to -rwsr-sr-x, but Apache gave me a 
misconfiguration error then. I am afraid that my problem stems from the 
fact that my RedHat bundled Apache uses /var/www as its document root 
instead of /usr/local/www as the script author's config.

I figure that maybe somewhere the script is looking for the wrong 

This looks like the most promising client for my needs. Cypheus is 
great, but I plan on rolling out in a commercial setting, and the 
budget won't allow for it. Not to mention that I can't seem to get it 
to authenticate to the host. (Always says wrong pw/username even though 
it is in the hfaxd.hosts file)
