I think you will need to install a card like this:

And we have used GFI faxmaker with great success:

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I don't know what your requirements are because you did not say how many lines you want to use. Here is the supported number of modems per microsoft. I'm still looking for a list of supported modems.

I think this is your answer:

One-line support: Windows XP Pro, Vista Business and Windows 7

Four-line support: Windows 2003 and 2008 Server Standard editions (Windows 2003 and 2008 editions support four lines as well).

Unlimited lines: Windows 2003 and 2008 Enterprise editions

There are plenty of modem products out there that have multiport fax modems on one card. I posted a link to one such product in my first post.

Clearly, as in my last post, the number of supported lines is determined by the version of Windows 2008 you are running ie. standard or enterprise.
