WOW! :) Did you design software fax machines like in the pc or
actual fax machines like the ones available then?
Both. From scratch. Actually wrote tons of assembly for controlling
the ccd, steppers and thermal head while compressing bitmaps to MR
and converting to hdlc fax frames. Punit (my wife) and I could tell
you what frame was sent by listening to the sound and in many cases
the fax machine at the other end.
My collegues and
I would be very thrilled to see your fax machines. We are (still)
in the field of maintaining and selling fax machines since '92.
Will get the old stuff from the factory. I have two protos which
combined fax and 286 pc into a fax form factor. The mobos have konked
out tho. The feature set would give todays multifunction machines a
kick in the pants - and that was in 93.
Before that, I was a VCR service engg. for 4 years.
days it was those older Ricoh, Minolta, Toshiba, Konica, Oki and
other such brands that were being replaced by Canon and Panasonic
They have different compression methods when talking to their own
brand machine to speed up xmission. Murata violated the G3 standards
I have mgetty-sendmail and efax but don't know how to set it up.
The command line instructions are complicated. I googled too but
too much coding. KdePrintfax is a gui version but it gives an error
of allow or deny files not being present. The google info is not
very clear on how to solve this problem. Is there any step by step
instruction for any proper faxing software that I can follow? It
should be a printer that prints on the remote location.
