Is there any way how to link this together or can Server 2003 Fax service
work only with local modem type device? HP printer is installed as a printer
there
Thank you,
TZ

Server 2003 Fax will only work with an analog Fax modem, it cannot drive a
multi-function printer.

Hal,
could you please just confirm my understanding how it works? Am I right to
think that communication between analog modem and Virtual Fax Printer driver
is done via installed provider(Currently only Microsoft Modem Device
Provider(fxst30.dll)). In case I'm right, wouldn't be possible to install
another provider to enable TCP/IP communication between Fax Printer driver
and multifunctional device instead of faxmodem? I don't know if there are
any providers like that available already but it can be developed then
probably? Or what for is the provider there, especially if it looks like you
can somehow add others...

Thank you for your answer,
TZ

It probably is possible, but no one has written one. I had this discussion
with the developers and their thought was it could be done via USB where it
would be possible to send to the MFP and have it do the faxing and it would
be possible for the MFP to initiate a receive, similar to the way printers
initiate low ink warnings, etc. Again, the PRINTER MANUFACTURER is the
responsible party and they've not developed anything; at least, they've not
come up with any two-way methodology. We own a big Lanier MFP which comes
with a send driver. Folks can "print" to it's Fax unit and send a Fax.
Received Faxes still simply print on the unit and the receiver must go to
the machine an pick up the printed page(s). So, in short, its definitely
possible, but no manufacturers have "picked up the ball".

Yep,
same functionality with our MFPs. It's a pity because interconnecting it
with MS Fax would be very nice feature. Anyway, thank you for your help and
confirmation

Thank you,
