SBS 2003 manual fax receive on client computer


  • I am administering an SBS 2003 R2 server and using the fax service. In the client office there is only one telephone line, so the fax service shares this line with the office phone which also has an answer machine attached. This means that they do not want the server to automatically answer calls at all as they do not receive frequent faxes. I have configured the fax service to deliver incoming faxes to a shared mailbox and setup the fax monitor to be permanently displayed on the server so that they can press a button to manually answer calls when they are expecting a fax or if they the hear the sound of an incoming fax message. However, it's very annoying for the network clients to have to walk over to the server just to receive a fax. Is there a way to give a manual fax answering facility to each client computer?
