Hiya guys.

Can this scenario be done with an ordinary US Robotics Faxmodem and HylaFax?


- HylaFax installed on a Debian i386 machine
- A USR modem attached via com1 to the Debian machine
- One telephoneline with the modem attached - aswell as an ordinary telephone


When someone calls in, an ordinary normal call phone to phone, the modem and hylafax will not answer and someone haveto pick up the ordinary phone an answer.

When someone calls in, a fax from an ordinary fax of some kind, the modem and hylafax sense its an incoming faxtransmission and answers, preferrably before the phone even rings.

Or is this something impossible to do with this setup, is a commercial hardware switchboard to achieve this?

You want to order "distinctive ring" from your telco and you need to make sure your modem supports it.
