Could you be a little more specific about what you mean by 'everything'? semt faxes? receoved faxes, config files?

Sent, received, and logs - absolutely.  Config files?  Those probably have to stay with the server - and I don't have any problem with that.  I just want the bulk storage to be on my main fileserver, and any "overhead", i.e. webserver, to be off-loaded as well.  Just leave that poor little box to drive the modems - it seems to do it well.

 I'm trying to convert an older box into a dedicated fax server - but with a twist.  The modems HAVE to be in this box, and of course HylaFax+ needs to be running here as well.  But I want everything to be saved and accessed from my file/web server.  I'm also using Avantfax for an interface - and I don't want to try to run a webserver on the fax box.  At first glance, I see a couple options:

1.  Use NFS, and mount the majority of the /var/spool/hylafax subfolders from the fileserver on the fax server.
2.  Use custom receive/send scripts on the fax server, that copy the files to the fileserver.
3.  Something much simpler and elegant that I don't know yet.

Using either option 1 or 2, I believe I'd need customer send/receive scripts on the fax server that would use ssh to execute the send/receive scripts on the webserver to update the Avantfax database.
