Hylafax(1) has this to say: information. For information on the server-side support provided with HylaFAX consult hfaxd(8C). For documenta- tion on the client-server fax protocol consult RFC XXXX (to be filled in). Have the XXXXs become numbers as yet? ;-) The document does not exist and I have no schedule for when it'll be ready. However the protocol is reasonably straightforward and the basic operation can be easily deduced by looking at a protocol trace for sendfax, faxstat, faxrm, faxalter, etc. You also have all the code. Basically think FTP and add in the concept of a job. Sam
