fax4CUPS is a simple shell scripts that acts as a CUPS backend.
fax4CUPS is a very simple shell script that acts as a CUPS backend for a serial fax modem. Essentially, you print with lpr and the fax is sent.

The nice thing is that you have CUPS around, and this means, for instance, that you can check whether your fax has been sent just using your favorite browser (as you would do for any other printer), even if the fax modem is really on a remote server. fax4CUPS project supports HylaFAX, efax, and mgetty-fax.

What's New in This Release:

Two deadly bugs in shell syntax have been fixed.

What's New in This Release:
  • Updated efax back end to extract the fax number from the job name (discarding any extraneous stuff) to enable printing from Windows to a Samba shared fax printer (thanks to Leigh Wedding for contributing this feature). Moreover we do not chown the temporary file: rather, we sudo /usr/bin/fax.
  • Fixed efax script: page formats are now normalised to the only three ones accepted (letter, legal and a4).
