I compiled hylafax for FREESCO in 2002, but I lacked the interest to even find out if it ran or not. There is a large amount of configuration that has to be done that is very specific for each install. I sort of made a package out of it and left it for anyone who was interested to complete and make a working package if possible. If you are interested as well as capable of making it work you can get the NON-working package from my web site <a href='http://lewys-spot.dyndns.org/packages/0.3.x/' target='_blank'>http://lewys-spot.dyndns.org/packages/0.3.x/</a>

I am pretty sure there is another fax package that is working as well, but I don't remember the details.
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.

I'm not sure what you mean by fax server. If you want to have FREESCO send faxes from the various clients on the network you should check out <a href='http://forums.freesco.org/support/index.php?showtopic=11892&hl=efax' target='_blank'>THIS</a> thread. If you just want it to receive faxes and email/print them you can find information about that <a href='http://forums.freesco.org/support/index.php?showtopic=7832&hl=efax' target='_blank'>HERE</a>.
