Hi,

I would like to monitor a XP Fax Console that runs on a server and send faxes. My program (probably will be a Windows Service) should track faxes that failed to be sent.

Does anyone has an idea how to approach this issue?

Thanks

http://www.gfi.com/faxmaker/ for a complete solution...but i think your asking for a way to check for failed from the existing MS FAX prog.

I'm sure that the console logs, so your just looking for a text failed event?

1. On the server, open My Computer, click Tools, click Folder Options,
click the View Tab, click "Show Hidden Files and Folders" and remove the
check from Hide Protected Operating System Files (Recommended).

2. Go to Server Management\Standard Management\Fax (Local).

3. Right click Fax (Local), go to Properties, Inbox tab, and you will see
the Archive Folder location, please check whether these two files are
stored in the Archive Folder. By default, the Archive Folder location is
"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows
NT\MSFax\Inbox".


Any luck this place might hold your answer? Im at work and dont have the MS  Fax to play with.
