HylaFAX Open Source Edition

If you're in the market for a fax solution for your business, you've probably heard of HylaFAX. It has been the de-facto standard for faxing on UNIX and UNIX-like (Linux, BSD) operating systems for over a decade, due in large part to its freely available source code and a thriving user and developer community. In 1991 when HylaFAX was first released this was still a relatively novel way to write software - these days this phenomenon is known as Open Source, and most businesses now recognize the benefits of building mission-critical infrastructure on open standards and peer-reviewed software.


Connect faxing directly to your IT infrastructure to automate processes and improve accuracy, efficiency and productivity.

HylaFAX's modular design offers a rich variety of integration scenarios, making it an ideal foundation upon which to build mission-critical fax systems. A variety of interfaces exist, including a Java API, SMTP gateway, command-line tools and client-server protocol.

With the ability to scale to hundreds of ports per server, HylaFAX Enterprise Edition will grow along with your faxing needs.
