IAXModem vs Hardware Modem Reliability

    I was directed to IAXModem from the Avantfax forums.   We have been using Avantfax and Hylafax since 2007 and could not be happier.  Our fax board is a Multimodem ZPX.  My reasons for exploring IAXModem is so that I can run my fax server in a virtual environment.  My Linux distribution of choice (SLES11) includes the Asterisk server and IAXModem in their software package repositories.   I am curious if using IAXModem and Hylafax in a virtual environment will be as robust as our current use of the Multimodem ZPX and Hylafax in a non virtual environment?  Thanks.

    I can't make any comment as to the reliability of anything in a virtual environment.  However, in faxing operations iaxmodems should be as reliable (if not more-so) as any other fax modem.
