I have the following setup and really need help to get this installation over the line.
We have installed VMWare server with SBS 2008 Virtual Machine and Windows Std Server 2008 - basically SBS 2008 premium. My problem is with the Fax Server. The customer needs it to work on the SBS to integrate with Sharepoint - not getting around that. Obviously USB and serial don't work with virtual stuff so I've used Fabulatech USB Over Network to share a USB modem from a client machine that the SBS 2008 connects to using the Fabulatech USB Over Network client.
I have been able to configure the fax server on SBS - no problem. It sees the USB modem (obviously with drivers installed) and configures cover sheets etc. But when I test with line in I'm getting errors:
"The fax can't be sent because of an unexpected error."
and in the Fax centre itself I'm getting "Fatal "Error" in the extended status of the job in the Outbox.
I have tried a lot to get this sorted. Upgraded the version of Fabulatech last night to an unofficial version (4.4). Reinstalled fax server service twice. By the way, get the same results whether the line is in or out of the modem on client machine (USB server) side.
Has anybody successfully implemented a fax server with SBS 2008 virtual or successfully used Fabulatech to do so.
