Since PHP doesn't offer any built-in faxing functionality, an
alternative could be to use an internet faxing service that caters to
developers, such as InterFAX, which enables faxing from scripts with no
All that's required is to have a SOAP implementation installed, such as
NuSOAP for PHP4 or the built-in SOAP in PHP5, to fax through the Fax Web
Service (see http://www.interfax.net/en/dev/webservice/ ) with just a
few lines of code.
As a developer, you can sign up for this service and send out unlimited
faxes to one designated fax number at no cost. The service is only paid
for once the client starts using it in operational mode.
There's a sample on how to fax from PHP using NuSOAP (see
), and also how to retrieve the status of your fax in real time.
