Yes. Once OSFAX is set up on a server on your network, you may submit documents via a fax printer queue from networked PC's direct to OSFAX. The windows printer is configured as a network printer with a specific Postscript driver spooling to an lpr queue on a UNIX host, if OSFAX is running on UNIX.
An OSFAX modem may be connected up to a single line from your PBX which maps a whole indial group to that line and uses "inband indial" to hand over the called number. Once a final user is identified, the incoming facsimile may be forwarded as PDF email to that user's desktop, printed nearby or left in that user's personal facsimile receive queue within OSFAX. More sophisticated routing such as round robin among a team may also be configured.
The simplest out of the box integration is to use the OSFAX facility to automatically create input print queues on your host system that look like printers loaded with pre-printed stationary. These printers may then be added to your accounting application's printer selection menu for immediate processing of document batch files.

Osiris was the primary deity throughout the height of Egyptian civilization. He was consort to Isis, the son of Ra, the father of Horus, and the leader of the gods on earth. After being killed by Set, Osiris resided in the underworld as the lord of the dead.
After Osiris was killed, Isis helped resurrected him with the Ritual of Life, which was later given to the Egyptians so that they could give eternal life to all their dead. The rituals and spells cast by Isis and other gods, were collected into The Book of Going Forth by Day, colloquially known as The Book of the Dead.
In the underworld, Osiris sits on a great throne, where he is praised by the souls of the just. All those who pass the tests of the underworld become worthy to enter The Blessed Land, that part of the underworld that is like the land of the living, but without sorrow or pain. In addition to the Judging of the Heart, Osiris passes final judgment over the dead, acting in this capacity as an Egyptian version of Radamanthus.
