I am trying to send a simple fax using the Hylafax module I got from cpan.
At first I tried a simple version of it for testing purposes.

use Fax::Hylafax::Client qw(sendfax);
my $fax = sendfax(
dialstring => '8582708999',
docfile => 'mine.txt',

I got this error:

Fax::Hylafax::Client: Net::FTP: connect: Unknown error at C:\DOCUME~1\Dave\LOCALS~1\Temp\dzprltmp.pl line 8

Line 8 is

use Fax::Hylafax::Client qw(sendfax);

This is weird because I 've installed the module on my computer successfully

Do you have the Hylafax[1] server up and running on that machine? If not, you need to specify the host, post, user, pass and all that good stuff for the Hylafax server you want to use to get it working.
