Standard Windows Server 2003 as a Faxing Server
Posted on 2006-06-27
I need to implement our current windows server 2003 (std edition) domain controller as a faxing server, with multiple fax lines and modems. Is this at all possible? I currently have one modem installed and faxing services setup on the server, with absolutely no problems. Unfortunately i cannot test on the system, nor do i have a testing environment.
Here is the current layout.
We have multiple departments in our organisation, we have a common fax line that i have already connected to the server for faxing purposes. (no problems, works fantastically)
We want to install additional faxing lines (one for each department), and have them all connected to the server. so that the users dont have to first print out the documents, and then go and stand at a normal fax machine and try to fax it from there.
I have heard that installing multiple modems into a windows system does not work.
Does anyone have any experience in this, or have successfully installed multiple modems?
(Other solutions regarding faxing are also welcome.. but we do not want to implement third party software if we can avoid it).
