Hardware for Windows 2008 fax server
Posted on 2014-09-11
We would like to start using Windows Fax server. We do not currently have a fax modem in our server.
Our server is located AWAY from our switch and our incoming fax line.
Question 1: Can we avoid installing a fax modem in the server itself by using some kind of "box" at the switch? The box would accept the incoming fax line and would "output" to a network cable that goes into our switch, and thus make a connection to the server?
If so, can someone recommend a brand/model?
Question 2: If we must install a fax modem in the server itself, is there a type that would accept as input the network cable? One of our main issues is we would prefer to NOT have to re-run our incoming fax line to the location where the server is physically located.
