Hopefully a fairly quick question or simple guidance.

I have a 2003 SBS SP1 server with an internal 56k modem for faxing. MY questions are, can a 2nd fax be installed, so that you have 2 faxes on seperate lines coming into the server?

If so, how can it be setup?

The maximum is 4 faxes.  Even 4 in + 4 out.  When using the Fax Configuration Wizard (< Fax(Local) < Server Management),  more than one device can be set up,  there is even the option to "Set specific routing destination for each device"

Thanks Zadkin, worked a dream, though the internal modem i originally used caused a conflict problem with the other internal modem, and so i used an external one instead.... though are you able to have 2 fax monitors?

I've never had success with external modems, so good luck.  Can you have 2 fax monitors?  Why not?
