64bit printer Driver

June 16, 2009

Q:
We are installing two new Terminal Servers(2008 x64bit). Right now ActiveFax is running WinXP Pro (x32bit)on a separate pc using a standard modem with a generic driver. I need to load a x64bit print driver so they can print to the activefax printer. Is there a x64bit driver available? I see that there is a “ActiveFax Program Files 64-bit(Fresh Installation and Update)” but if a x64bit driver is available that would be great. Hate to have to put it on a x64bit machine as a fresh install…

A:
The printer driver is installed directly with the setup routine, so you just need to run the setup of the 64-bit version to install the 64-bit printer driver.

Printing / Terminal Server

May 21, 2009

Q:
When we try to print a document from another terminal calling upon the activefax printer the document does not get transmitted, rather it appears as a hung job in the activefax printer, and we have to reboot the server to clear the job.

A:
You need to take care to enable the option for terminal server extensions on the fax client in the menu File / Automatic Startup / Terminal Server in that case. Take care to once log off from Windows when you change that option. When this option is not set, you normally get the fax dialog window for the print job directly on the console screen of the terminal server which then blocks the spooler as long as the window is open.

Q:
Does the activefax server and client have to be installed on each PC that needs to activefax?

A:
On normal workstations, you just need to install the fax client. The fax server is only installed on a single PC in the network.

Route faxes to different printers

May 14, 2009

Q:
If we have more than one modem in a single Server,  Is it possible to route faxes coming in from each modem/faxline – to be outputted to *different* printers, so that we do not confuse our faxing systems?

A:
Yes, this would be no problem. You just need to assign a different default user for each modem in the menu Communication / Modem / Modify and can then configure individual printer settings for each of these users with the menu Extras / User Administrator / Modify / Printing.

Margins

April 14, 2009

Q:
We are experiencing some inconsistencies with margins dependent upon the client the report is sent to. The majority of these print out correctly. The margins are currently set universally for 10 mm’s left, right, top & bottom. Are there any known issues with margin settings not being honored in all instances?

A:
When using the ActiveFax printer, the margin is normally set directly by the application. Since the ActiveFax printer does not have a non-printable area, it would be possible to set the top and left margin also to 0.

Q:
I may have describe the issue incorrectly.These are faxes sent by ActiveFax. They are not being printed by ActiveFax.

A:
But you print the document to be faxed to the ActiveFax printer, correct? In that case, the margin is normally set directly in the application creating the print job for the ActiveFax printer (i.e. in Winword).

It would also be possible to configure an additional margin for faxes sent by ActiveFax with the menu Extras / Options / Modem on the fax server.

Crystal Reports

March 23, 2009

crystalreports

Q:
We intend to use ActiveFax with Crystal Reports (ver 9, 10 ,11). Is it possible? How does it work?

A:
Sending faxes from Crystal Reports with ActiveFax would be possible. You just need to print the report directly to the ActiveFax printer in that case. The recipients fax number and other data can be set directly in the report with data fields to automatically send such reports.

Nextgen EMR

January 24, 2009

screenshot
Q:
I am trying to use data fields inside of Nextgen EMR which uses it’s own file format .NGN which I believe is based on RTF. It seems that the Activefax printer must be the default in order to keep the AF font inside these documents. Any other ideas? I guess I am going to try to move on to using the fileserver feature of Active fax and see if I can get that working. I do not have a lot of control over the Nextgen Document system.

A:
The ActiveFax printer does not need to be the system default printer, but since the ActiveFax font is a printer internal font, most applications only show such fonts when the active printer is the ActiveFax printer. As an alternative it would also be possible to use data fields as part of the document name when EMR uses the document name for the print job name in the printer spooler. To process documents directly through the file system, it is important to use a file format that can be directly processed by the fax server (HP Laserjet, Epson, Tiff G3 + G4, Postscript and PDF).
