Re: [hylafax-users] Hylafax+ With E1 card possible ?

Hi George,

If your current setup does everything that you need then why not simply
upgrade to an 8-port analog fax card ?  5,000 pages a day really is not
terribly demanding especially if you use V.34 and JBIG compression.  The
biggest single advantage of staying with analog is that you can continue to
allow HylaFAX to do all of the fax protocol work... when you select a E1
card you are using proprietary API's or are dependant on the card vendors
protocols which are often not very robust and rarely get updated.

One final point.... in the comparative performance tests that I have seen
analog usually outperforms digital.

Want to say that hylafax+ is really great and because of it my faxserver
with 5 external modems is taking on HUGE load (5,000 pages a
day) and it's going to get larger.

While thinking of solutions I came up with the idea of using an E1 fax card
that can take 30 lines. I've never tried this before on hylafax+ but we are
using E1s internally for other things.

So wondering if anyone has ever used HylaFAX+ with an E1 card and if so does
HylaFAX+ see ttyS0 to ttyS30 ?
Another thing, E1s are digital and they send like 30 signals within 1
cable... does this have any impact on fax transmissions ?
