How PageGate Sends Faxes Transcript for Video:
Welcome to the video tutorial overview of how PageGate sends faxes. In this tutorial, we’ll be going over the three available methods PageGate has available to send faxes.
In general, there are three ways to send faxes from PageGate:
- Locally connected modem
- Local Microsoft Fax Server
- Network Microsoft Fax Server
First, we have direct fax delivery from Pagegate. When using a modem local to the PageGate server, you can have PageGate directly negotiate fax delivery using that modem. If you have a fax capable modem available on the PageGate server, you can configure PageGate to reference the device directly to dial the necessary fax machines. This option does require that you have a connected modem, which may present some complications to virtual servers.
Next, we have the local Microsoft Fax Server configuration. If you install the Microsoft Fax Server on the machine running PageGate, you can configure PageGate to pass all necessary faxes to the fax server for delivery. Using a Microsoft Fax Server for fax delivery is generally the recommended method of fax delivery as the Microsoft Fax Server has certain automatic fax class negotiation abilities that PageGate does not.
And last we have the network Microsoft Fax Server configuration. If the PageGate server is running in a virtual environment or you already have a Microsoft Fax Server configured on your network, PageGate can make use of that network resource to send faxes. Using a Microsoft Fax Server for fax delivery is generally the recommended method of fax delivery as the Microsoft Fax Server has certain automatic fax class negotiation abilities that PageGate does not.
This concludes the overview of how PageGate sends faxes.
