CUPS backend for a serial fax modem
'fax4CUPS' 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. It supports efax and HylaFAX. CUPS provides filters to automagically convert files in various formats, and backends to send the raw data to parallel ports, serial ports, sockets, USB devices, etc.
