FAX Servers and Network Faxing
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
Fax servers are computers with fax devices that manage incoming and outgoing faxes. Users at workstations can avoid lines at the office fax machine by simply sending faxes from their desktop to the fax server. Because the fax server is shared by many users, it reduces the need to install many individual fax devices throughout a company. Most fax servers also provide inbound services, which route incoming faxes to users on a network. Fax servers can keep log files of faxing activities for later scrutiny and manage the fax address books for a company.
