Quoting John Daragon <john@xxxxxxxxxx>:
Asterisk would be my first choice...Asterisk would do all of this, but... a) It's *really* picky about modems. The X100P analogue card is the only single line one for which drivers are available, and it doesn't support UK CLID. You can, however, buy one for Â£9.99 b) There's something of a learning curve. That said, It'll accept faxes and distribute them via email. Ditto voicemail. It'll turn each of your PC's into a SIP phone. I'll handle extensions. It's as flexible as a flexible thing.
It sounds like the sort of thing I want, okay, maybe a little bit overkill for a home server, but the voicemail and faxing is what I'm after. I did try Hylafax, got the modem working (original ISA bus Lucent modem wouldn't work - its a darn WinModem and even the Linux drivers didn't pick it up), still I managed to find an old 33k Rockwell ISA modem lying around which worked a treat. I couldn't work out though how to get voicemail working on Hylafax, I've read somethere that it can be done, but I can't for the life of me work it out. Anyone tried the mgetty+sendfax (and vgetty) route? If all else fails I'll just stick some fax software on the Mac and have done with it.
