11. The integrated HTTP server

XFAX features an integrated HTTP server, which makes it possible to use a browser and to send a fax, display faxes, display queues etc. It is also possible to forward a fax as e-mail where the actual fax pages will be JPEG attachments in the e-mail.

You need to enable the HTTP server in order to use it (see HTTP_ENABLE). The default port the server listens to is 7180, this can be changed using HTTP_PORT in the config file.

If the server is enabled and is using the default port, point your browser to http://hostname:7180.

In order to limit access to the HTTP server you can specify hosts or networks that can access the server, see ACCESS_HTTP. You can also specify users and password using USER_FILE.
