GFI Faxmaker not picking up inbound fax

Ive inserted a new (well I found it in a box of old cards) into my fax server and Ive used the GFI fax server detection wizard to find and set up the modem which it does without error. When I dial the fax server, the inbound call is not being detect.

Any ideas why this is? Im not 100% sure what make the PCI Fax card is - so maybe it could be a driver issue?

Whats the best way to detect what modem it is (Windows doesnt recognise the modem either).

I think my problems are driver related.

No, it fails and then it tries to connect to windows update but that also comes back and says no drivers available.

you will be able to find a driver I expect you will find a code on the back that will lead you to a driver I use to do it all the time for modems when they didn't plug and play

I was hoping to avoid that, the board is in the server and Im not able to take it offline until the weekend.

Need some sort of modem driver detector?
