SBS Fax Services with Fax Machine as backup?
Posted on 2009-05-01
We are experimenting with using our existing SBS 2003 server to handle fax services for our business instead of the IntelliFax-2820 we currently use.
My goal is to have the computer answer faxes and put them in a folder, so far this is working. I would also like to keep the existing Brother IntelliFax-2820 machine connected for SENDING faxes and receiving them only in the event the server goes down. I setup the server to answer in 2 rings, and the fax machine to answer in 4 -BUT the fax machine still answers instead of the server, if I disconnect the fax machine the server answers and routes the fax to the folder fine.
Is there a way to do what I want? I would be fine with disable receiving faxes on the Fax machine if possible, we really only need it for sending.
