By default, YajHFC will send one fax per document printed to the fax printer.

You can change that behaviour to "collect" multiple documents printed to the fax printer in one fax, however (with the default Windows fax printer (Redmon or RedmonEE)).

This article contains a short example on how to automatically install YajHFC using a Windows domain logon.bat script. It has been contributed by Stefan Agethen.

Starting with version 0.5.2 the setup of YajHFC has three options for creating a fax printer. This article tries to give a short comparison to help you decide which one to choose.

Version 0.6.0 and up support adding a user comment to faxes (in both sent and received tables). If the read/unread state is saved in a database table (as described in Setting up YajHFC for small workgroups), this table needs 2 new columns where this comment can be saved.

In YajHFC, you can define custom modems. This can be useful in one of the following scenarios:

  • You would like to give your modems custom names instead of the default HylaFAX names (e.g. "Company A" for ttyS0, "Company B" for ttyS1)
  • You would like to make HylaFAX modem groups selectable in YajHFC.

To define custom modems, do the following steps:

  1. In the options dialog go to the Modems panel for the desired server.
  2. Check the Use the following list of modems option.
  3. Add/Modify/Remove the modems in the table as you like.
    For example: Enter the description "Company X" for the Modem with HylaFAX name "ttyS0". there).
    To add a modem group here, add a new line to the table and enter the group's name as defined in the HylaFAX configuration as HylaFAX name (similar to the predefined any modem).
  4. Click OK. You should now be able to see the modems you have defined in the modem selection list of the send dialog.
