HylaFax


  • Service Provider

    Any of you have any HylaFax installs out there independent of freepbx or elastix? Gonna be playing with this for a client and wanted to get a little insider info before diving in.

    Once many, many years ago. You could install FreePBX or Elastix and use it only for HylaFax too. Since they are free, not too much reason to not go for the whole hog.

    I've got no need for anything else. Guess I could use it to sample elastix to them and sell a phone system.

    Needing anything else isn't a factor, is it? It's just about the simplest way to get Hylafax installed, right?

    Elastix or any other distro have any issue running in 08r2 hyper v?

    Not sure. Why such an old HyperV? That's quite old. Don't know anyone testing on that.

    That's an odd answer - especially given they are apparently introducing a new system with Hylafax. Have you looked into upgrading them or talked to them about the risks and overhead they may be introducing? That's several versions old and for a free system and especially one where running old means lots of missing features, stability, performance it seems like looking into upgrading it, especially if it might aid in the compatibility of the system at hand, it seems like considering addressing that would be good. Especially as you are looking to implement something where specifically Linux support is something improved in the more modern version of HyperV.

    If their lack of upgrading causes issues with the project, it seems that maintaining status quo for its own sake should at least be questioned, if nothing else, right?

    That is not an odd answer. They have an existing VM infrastructure. Normal business do not look to change core infrastructure every time they look at adding a new VM for some task or another.

    Asking if there is any compatibility issues is a very normal thing that has to be done with ANY system.

    Answer the question that was asked without tossing in craptastical bias.

    Want to toss in the rest of your opinion? Great! Don't lead with it.

    Back to the OP's question. I have never ran any type of 2008R2 Hyper-V servers. I know that Hyper-V prior to 2012 had many issues compared to ESXi. Which is why all of my clients started out on the virtualization path using VMWare.
