Is there a way to have access from Ubuntu 12.04 (LibreOffice Writer OR other) to an Epson Stylus NX305 FAX?
The FAX machine has a PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) port and a USB (Universal Serial Bus) port and works well as a stand alone FAX (facsimile) using the PSTN port for both incoming and outgoing FAX. I would like to be able to send FAX requests directly from the computer so I do not need to take the extra steps to print and scan the outgoing FAX. It would also be nice to divert incoming FAX so they need not be scanned to save the FAX on the computer.
Print and scan work well, but it would be nice to save ink in printing the FAX. Most of the companies with which I deal have FAX which makes it a more secure option than email and a lot faster than a courier service like USPS (United States Postal Service), UPS (United Parcel Service), FedEx (Federal Express), etc.
