one way to receive faxes is to use an internet service
http://www.google.ca/search?&q=receive+faxes+internet

some of them offer a limited number of faxes per month free ... i have not tried them

for example:

Gliezl,

In this case, the only diference between a modem connection and a higspeed conection is the speed. You can connect remotelly using the same tools. It will just be slower over modem.

The most secure and simple way is using SSH.

- You just need SSH if you only want to do text mode.

- Saddly you cannot use X over SSH if you use vesa. If you install MU's XFree package then you can do X over SSH.

- If you want access to your full puppy graphic desktop you can use VNC. If you want it secure you can use VNC SSH.

- These are just a few options that I use and feel comfortable with.

Let me know if I can help you setting up one of these. I can actually help you configure it remotelly if we set a time to meet on IRC.

You can start by reading a HOWTO I wrote some time ago.

Oh, now I understand your second question, I thought it was unrelated to the first one.

mgetty will do the job. Have you tried compiling it? try using puppy 1.0.5 with the usr_devx.sfs

Just do the following: (as I am explaining using the 'latest' tar, the actual folder name may be different, right now is mgetty-1.1.33)
Code:

wget -c ftp://alpha.greenie.net/pub/mgetty/source/1.1/mgetty-latest.tar.gz
tar -xvzf mgetty-latest.tar.gz
cd mgetty-1.1.33
cp policy.h-dist policy.h
make
make install



For fax you should also know this

Actually I recommend to read the documentation under ftp://alpha.greenie.net/pub/mgetty/source/1.1/

Actually here is a better alternative. An already compiled mgetty.

I recommend you to try it using the liveCD without writing to HDD (boot option 3). If it does not work you just reboot and no harm done.

Code:

wget -c http://externix.lycos-europe.am/ftp/downloads/slackware/slackware-ttw/mgetty-1.1.31/mgetty-1.1.31-i486-3ttw.tgz
tar -xvzPf mgetty.tgz


I still recommend reading the manual pages on the previous post.

If you plan on using the HCF modem for faxing you may want to know that:

"Fax and Voice support (PCI version only) are still preliminary and have
not yet been sufficiently tested. Voice is limited to V.92 modems (73DP)
for now."

Thats according to the BUGS file from the hcf drivers source tree.

BTW: "V.92, Caller ID, FAX and Voice" are not implemented for the HSF drivers."

Note however, that the latest drivers (free for speeds upto 14.4k) has fax support. So if you mainly want to send faxes you can try compiling the latest drivers if the ones you have don't work.

NB. The distribution clause of linuxant license's prevents redistribution.

or I'll have to buy a second-hand external modem for this reason. It's really difficult to get linux working with winmodems. Mad
Got to try mgetty working after I purchase the modem. Thank you guys for your time & effort. Very Happy
