Just noticed that your question is still
unanswered .. I advocated efax as well when
this thread was started.
NO, efax does not need a background daemon/
server. It directly dials and sends fax in
Class 1&2 modems. The interaction is through
command line only ..
For example, to dial the number 633222 using
tone dialing and send a two-page fax from
the TIFF/G3 files letter.001 and letter.002
using a Class 1 fax modem connected to ttyS0
just type in:
efax -d /dev/ttyS0 -o1 \
-t T633222 letter.001 letter.002
And there are similar one liners which will
retreive fax for you too ..... The man pages
are adequate to get you going quickly ..
