ActiveFax can be used to integrate the fax and E-Mail functionality into various different environments without the need for extensive modifications. Additionally to the use in Microsoft Windows systems, the Fax Server can also be used for sending fax documents and E-Mails from any other operating system, for example UNIX. ActiveFax supports various network protocols (e.g. LPD/LPR) for the connection to the Fax Server. Therefore, sending a fax message becomes as easy as printing a document. Furthermore, it is possible to send fax documents to the Fax Server with a serial interface (RS-232) or the file system (NFS, Samba, etc.). ActiveFax interprets the printer sequences of HP-LaserJet, Epson-LQ and optionally Postscript. So-called data fields can be used to specify the parameters (recipient, subject, priority, etc.) already from within an application.
"Excellent" - Brent Hannah [June 22, 2005] Product Rating: 5/5
I spent several weeks reviewing fax servers and activefax was the clear winner. The cost is reasonable, installation is simple, all of the features work, and it is very stable. My requirements are very simple and it was hard to find a package that wasn't buried with useless options, but I found activefax when I was just about ready to give up and go back to winfax (yuck).
"Ports Hang" - Scott [January 16, 2004]
The user interface is nice, setup is easy. Outbound faxing has been good, but don't get this if you do high volume inbound faxing. I receive about 300 faxes a day and the software has a problem with hanging the modems off-hook, thus leaving fax lines busy.
"Automatic" - Marko Savic [December 16, 2003] Product Rating: 2/5
We’ve been working with Active Fax tech support over one year on several issues with our fax server. 1. Unable to apply changes to one port without resetting all modem ports. 2. Novell NDPS and queue printing not working. 3. Cutting off pages (error lines) on incoming faxes, some pages are unreadable.
