Thanks for the info John..... I was aware of whfc, which I have tested, and
which works fine with windos clients, as you just print to the fax port and
up pops the fax dialog.... unfortunately all of my clients are either BSD or
solaris ones also running star-office 52 and I am still unsure of how to
perform the same sort of actions from there!!
Any further ideas??
