Trufax board with Windows 2008

July 27, 2009

Q:
We are looking to use a Brooktrout Trufax board with Windows SBS 2008 as well. Have drivers been released since your original posting? Thank you!

A:
When using a Trufax board with Windows 2008, take care to use the new RoHS-compliant Trufax board, since old Trufax boards do not support Windows 2008. The drivers for such boards are available at http://www.activefax-distribution.com/e_download.php

Fax extension numbers

July 27, 2009

Q:
Hello ActiveFax, we have the activefax server software version 4.14. At the moment many users/clients have their own faxnumber. Can we configure the users/clients with their own individual accounts but send from and receive faxes in their individual accounts, with only one faxnumber for all of them ?

A:
If you want to send faxes directly to a user with just a single fax number, you need to use extension numbers (DDI). This only works when extension numbers are also supported by your phone line, by your phone system and by the modem or fax board. If possible, I would recommend to use ISDN in that case, since extension numbers are normally supported by most ISDN phone systems.

Transfer to a new server

July 27, 2009

Q:
We run Active Fax and it currently is on a server that is going bad. We want to know the best way to move the program from one server to the next with > the least amount of down time.

A:
To transfer an existing ActiveFax installation to a new computer, copy the complete ActiveFax installation directory (usually C:\ProgramFiles\ActiveFax) with all subdirectories from the old server to the new server. After the files have been copied you need to run the ActiveFax Setup on the new server to create the programs and services on the new server. That way all data and settings are transferred to the new system.

The installation drive and directory may also change when you transfer the files to the new server. For example it would also be possible to transfer an ActiveFax installation from C:\Program Files\ActiveFax on
the old server to D:\Programs\ActiveFax on the new server.

Password protection for pdf files

July 26, 2009

Q:
I am trying to Email patient statements through activefax. I have successfully set that up through my business program;however, I am told that these attached PDF’s need to be password protected to meet HIPPA complinace laws in the US. Is there a Fcode that I can use to do that?? If not, can you suggest a way to do that with your program?? I do not see this addressed in your documentation. If not, you should consider that. It should be an easy addition

A:
I’m sorry, but password protection for PDFs created by ActiveFax is not possible. This is mainly because of copyright reasons of the RSA algorithm used for password protected PDF files. We do however have plans to integrate password protection of PDF files with a future release.

ISDN adapter in a different machine

July 26, 2009

Q:
I would like to know if Active fax can run using an ISDN network adapter located in a different machine. This particular scenario is of interest as I want to consolidate servers and as such, p2v the activefax server machine.

A:
The ISDN board always needs to be locally installed in the same machine where the fax server is installed. Running the fax server and the ISDN board in two different machines is not possible. In general, I would
recommend to not run the fax server on a virtual machine, since the fax protocol is an analog protocol and timing of that protocol is very critical, so normally you do not get reliable connections when using a
virtual machine.

HP fax machine

July 26, 2009

Q:
We have just connected a new hp fax machine because our old one died. Now whenever we try to send a fax through active fax the fax machine answers the line and prints it out, stopping the fax been sent. Active
fax says that it has been sent successfully. There is no auto answer on the machine and we have taken it back and got another as we though it was faulty and have tried two different models. The fax line is shared with the internet/activefax.

A:
If possible, I would recommend to use a separate line for the fax machine or use a splitter, so only one of the two lines is active. If this is not possible, I would recommend to disable incoming fax calls on the HP machine to avoid that the fax machine answers to calls made from the fax modem.
