Fax manager for Synology DSM

Recommended Posts

I have an old fax modem PCI card installed in my NAS. Since it is ON almost 24 hours everyday, I am thinking of using it to manage all incoming faxes. I don't need to send faxes. I just need to receive them.

 

I have googled for solution but I couldn't find any.

 

Has anyone tried this? Does it has the necessary driver? Is there any third party software that I can install in the DSM?

 

It will be amazing if the software can forward the faxes in PDF file via email.

benjistark, you might want to look into installing debian chroot and then install the fax package from the debian package list. There are a few so you would have to do your own research as to which one suits your needs:

BTW, the easiest way for debian chroot installation is from the Synocommunity package source.
