    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.
