Need to Override Microsoft Fax Service Manager RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a server with one internal fax modem. I use Microsoft Fax Service Manager to receive faxes. I have a third party application from which I need to send faxes. However, the third party gives me a failure to initialize modem error if the Fax Service Manager is running at all.

    I have tried setting the Fax Service Manager to receive only, turning off its capabilities to send. I have tried setting it from auto to manual receive. These don't work. The only way I can send faxes from my third party software is to completely stop the fax service manager.

    Is there any other way around this?

  • I would suggest you internet fax service to send and receive faxes by web, in this way you'll not need the fax modem, Microsoft Fax service manager and the third party application to send/receive faxes.
