Capturing fax modem output in vb fax server app


F

Filippo Amadini

I'm developing a fax server application using VB and the new Ms fax
extended com model. The app shall run on win2003. Basically, it is the
Windows's fax service that handles the fax's output and the vb app
only needs to instance a com object to control the fax service
operations.

Now, the specific fax modem I'm using writes special data on the com
port through which it communicates after the first ring, and I need to
retrieve it. For instance:

[modem output example]
RING
<special data>
RING
RING...

Does anybody know if it is possible to capture the modem's output (in
order to parse the data) even if the com port is in use by the win 2k3
fax service?
Is it possible to do it in VB?
A second question: Is there an event, in the MS fax Com Extended
model, fired after the first ring of the modem fax, in which I can
call the procedure that should retrieve the special data?

Thanks, Filippo Amadini

Here is my thoughts on the application which you are developing. You can
use a Fax SDK that can be used in Visual Basic. Please visit the link given

Thank you for your attention. Actually, I am using the SDK you refer
to. But my need is to collect the low level output of the fax, such as
"RING" or the answers to the AT commands. At the same time, I would
like to continue to use the high level COM model, and not the TAPI.
Thanks anyway. Any other thought?
