[Freeswitch-users] Faxing via FreeSWITCH documentation

Hey all,

I know that there is a good amount of information out there on how to do 
faxing via FreeSWITCH, but I'm still finding myself a bit confused.

I'm currently trying to figure out the process by which I would need to 
do this.  I'll detail my setup, and ask questions.  I've read 
documentation, but I'm still missing something.

Okay, I'm currently running FreeSWITCH in a CentOS VM, with 4GB of RAM, 
and I'm the only user.  I'm using FlowRoute, and I have a couple of 
unused numbers.  Pretty simple, nothing out of the ordinary (except 
maybe the VM part?).

At some point in the next six months or so, I'll be getting a couple of 
dedicated servers here for various things, and I'll begin moving my VM 
servers from my main computer to those, as actual hardware hosts.

So my fax machine is built into an "All-in-one" Network 
Printer/Scanner/Fax (Brother MFC-7360N).

Here's my main question, do I need to get a special card to run a cable 
from my computer to the Fax?

Is it better to get a dedicated fax machine to use, or are there 
specialized fax machines for Fax over IP?

Thanks guys and gals,
