  • FAX modem compatible with SBS 2011...

    Hello all!

    I need a help regarding choseing the FAX modem (internal/extrenal) which is compatible with SBS 2011.
    In previosly SBS 2003, some admin chose US Robotics on USB and it doesnt work Ok. On new server I want to put a certificated FAX modem but the problem is that link windowsservercatalog dot com
    doesnt have a HCL for SBS 2011 neither for FAX modems.
    I contact the Microsoft support in Serbia and they dont known either where to find information.

    Any help?

    Thanx.

    Did you try looking at the modem list by adding a device manually?
    Check Server 2008 R2 compatibility -- thats the appropriate hardware platform

    IMHO, fax via internet (e.g. www.interfax.net) is the way to go

      Since fax server is now in all windows platforms, whatever works for Server 2008 R2 SP1 will work for SBS 2011 - but not if it is virtualised!
      TIA

        Hello Teiger!

        I understand about Vurtualization. Dont needed. And I think Hyper-V isnt possible in SBSs...

        I need compatible FAX modem either interal ot external for SBSs. The Microsoft dont have a list for supported FAX modems for SBSs than only for Server 2003. Called i support in Serbia, but they dont known that information.

        Regards.

          Hello Ossian!

          Thanx for replay!

          I didnt installed SBS 2011 because our company didnt buyed any server yet but I am collecting information.

          It is confusing that Microsoft dont have a list of suuported FAX modem for other server OS-es than Server 2003.

          I ll install SBS 2011 on my test machine and try to list a supported modems inside SBS by adding a modem.

          Thanx in support! If you have some other sugestions, please do!

          Regards.

            is your friend:
            from
            http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../cc754175.aspx
            Fax works with analog fax modems. Using ISDN modems with Fax is not tested or supported by Microsoft.
            Again - if it works with Server 2008 R2, it works with SBS 2011
            TIA

              We are using a US Robotics serial modem with our SBS 2011 server. I imagine most serial port modems will be fine if your server has a serial port as they are a bit more straight forward than USB.

                I have successfully used USR model 5637 on SBS 2011.
