Which Modem to use for ActiveFax

January 25, 2010

Q:
I need to setup ActiveFax for a client and wanted to know if you could recommend a low cost fax modem which works well with ActiveFax. The client has a limited hardware budget and would like to keep their costs down.
They have 20-30 users running on Windows 2003 and 2008 terminal servers. Using Woodpro. I did look at your page of recommended fax modems but I thought it would be worthwhile to inquire with someone directly in case the list had not been updated with new information. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:
In general, I recommend not using low-cost modems (less than $ 50) for faxing, since such modems are normally very unreliable in fax mode and you often get aborted fax transmissions. I think the best choice in
your case is using a Multitech Multimodem-ZBA modem (see http://www.multitech.com/en_US/PRODUCTS/Families/MultiModemZBA/).

Magic Jack

October 11, 2009

Q:
Hello I have downloaded your program and I am going to try it out. I have a Magic Jack phone line for my fax and other programs have a hard time with this. Are there any setting that I need to change to make sure it will work smoothly? I have sent some test pages and sometimes it works ok and other times it has to be sent two or three times before it comes through all the way. I don’t have problems sending, only receiving. Thanks, I hope that the program works for my needs I have hard great things about the software.

A:
The main problem in that case is that this is a VoIP based line which is always problematic when used for faxing because of the tight timing requirements of the fax protocol. What you can try to do is to limit the
baud rate to 9,600 bps in the menu Communication / Modem / Modify / Extended on the fax server.

Robotics Modem

September 4, 2009

Q:
Hi, I’ve installed activefax to one on my customers; he has a us robotics Professional Message Modem wich has the features to receive fax-messages when the pc is powered off; the modem works fine when the pc and activefax are running; when the pc is powered off, the modem correctly receive and store the fax-messages in itself, but then when i switch on the pc with activefax server i’m not able to deploy the fax messages from the modem storage to activefax; is there a way to fix it?

A:
I’m sorry, but receiving faxes with the fax server PC turned off is not supported by ActiveFax, so you always need to have the fax server PC running to receive faxes with ActiveFax.

COM3/COM4

August 26, 2009

Q:
I HAVE TWO LINES ONE IS ON COM 3 AND THE OTHER IS COM4. THEY BOTH ALREADY HAD THESE SETTING U RECOMMENDED. I HAD A PROVIDER CALL 10 TIMES AND LINES WERE NOT BUSY IT JUST KEPT RINGING AND RINGING AND FINALLY ABOUT THE 11TH TRY IT CAME THROUGH.

A:
If incoming calls are not automatically answered after the first ring, you should make sure that the number of rings is configured to 1 in the menu Communication / Modem / Modify and that the option “Enable incoming calls (Receive)” is enabled there. You can also monitor if the modem received the incoming call when you click on the modem icon (i.e. Modem on COM03) and change to the Modem Protocol tab there. When there is an incoming call reported by the modem, a RING signal is displayed there.
