send content of order to a fax machine


I have a ASP.NET order form and I'd like the content of the order sent to my customer's fax machine when he clicks on SUBMIT. Is there any tutorial or open source or hosting solution out there? Thanks

You're looking for a fax server solution with an API for your application in order to de-couple the actual sending of the fax from the web page submit button. A quick serach on Google shows there are a lot of Windows packages available that can do just that, assuming you have a fax modem connected to a server.

If you're open to a Linux solution for the server with an APIs for the Windows environment, have a look at Hylafax. I've used it many times, both for fax and pager applications and have found it to be very reliable.

A search for "hylafax windows API .net" produced a lot of solutions for your web applications. Unfortunately, I haven't used the APIs (I have used Windows clients).
Question has a verified solution.
