Comparison of Windows fax printer options


Starting with version 0.5.2 the setup of YajHFC has three options for creating a fax printer. This article tries to give a short comparison to help you decide which one to choose.

Mode of operation

Please note that I personally can only test against default installations of the "normal" workstation versions of Windows XP/Vista/7 (YajHFC being a Open Source project I do not have the resources to do more here...).
(Terminal) Server versions should usually work, too, but I need your feedback if problems arise with such a Windows version.

Comparison table

64bit Terminal Server RemoteApp YajHFC must be running
Redmon yes no partially no
RedmonEE no yes partially no
mfilemon yes yes yes yes



Usually the default the setup program chooses should be fine for most users.
If you are experiencing problems with one of the Redmon options (such as "session 0 isolation" popups) it is usually worth giving the mfilemon method a try (please let me know if this is the case, so future versions may be improved).
