Can someone point me to some software that would enable me to send
faxes from an AP/SCO 6.1 system. I would appreciate a dealer that is
in the Asia Pacific Region as I am located in Malaysia.

Thanks.

I solved this at one customer using a DigiFax fax board (from DigiBoard).
It comes with SCO drivers and a pretty easy command line syntax. The
process was: write fax to a pick item; use export command to get it to a
unix file; EXECUTE '!sendfax '

It works real well. We had some problems with ownership of the unix file,
but that was easily solved. The big drawback was the limitations in fonts
-- everthing was in Courier, fixed pitch. Also, it was text only. But
other than that it worked OK and they have done some mass faxings (1000+
names) over a weekend.

Hope this helps.

Give Monolith corp a try - Their Desqtop product contains a faxing
capability. I _think_ the fax module can be separated from the main
product, and I'm pretty sure it works off and fax/modem when you have
unix. Send an email to Ray Methvin at r.methvi@granite.monolith.com.

Also, there is a guy called Ross Ferris who posts to this group
occasionally. I think he's based in Australia, and I found him _extremely_
helpful when looking for fax software. I don't have his email address on
hand, but can get it for you if you need.

Happy faxing, and if there's anything else you need, stop in at our web
page (below) and drop us a note.
