Which modems can be used with HylaFAX

HylaFAX is intended to be used with fax modems. Fax modems are not the same as data modems though most contemporary data modems also include support for fax communication. HylaFAX should work with any Class 1, Class 2, or Class 2.0 fax modem. Wherever possible HylaFAX works around known modem problems or restricts modem usage in order to provide a functioning system.

The following is a list of modems that have been used with HylaFAX. There are likely others modems that have been tried and/or are being used with HylaFAX; this list shows only those that have some form of support in the software or that have been publicly reported as functional (though beware that what is functional to one person may not be functional to you). Consult the Modems section of this documentation for known modem bugs and gotchas or follow the links in the table to find information for a particular modem.

Note that modems based on off-the-shelf parts (as opposed to custom DSP-based implementations) such as those produced by Rockwell are usually plug compatible when it comes to fax usage. HylaFAX includes configuration files for modems based on modem parts from Rockwell: RC96AC, RC144AC, RC144DP, RC32ACL, RC224A, and RC288DPI parts; Exar; and Cirrus Logic. Writing a configuration file for a modem that is not directly supported is straightforward.
