|HylaFAX The world's most advanced open source fax server|
If need be, I save a copy of the file with a random name to a given directory on the Hylafax server, send the fax, and then delete the file. Do you know if the file is accessed when initiating sendfax (i.e. sendfax –d 555-1212 myfile.pdf), or when Hylafax actually makes the connection and delivers the fax.
I've never attempted what you are asking specifically, but if it can't be done directly, you could have a cron job to wget the file in question, at whatever time intervals are needed, and then send it that way.

Is it possible to send a fax where the attached file is a file on the Internet? I guess I am envisioning something like:
sendfax –n –d 555-1212 http://somesite.com/somefile.pdf
