Question about Equisys Brooktrout TR114-I4L (TR114-14L) Modem

Open Question

BrookTrout TR114+P4L Got a FACSYS Fax Server running on Windows 2000 Server using 2 BrookTrout TR114+P4L boards, server has been running in a production environment for the last 3 years but stopped working yesterday after applying the latest Windows updates and restarting the box. Thought it might be the windows update that caused it so restored the entire server from backup but still the same problem. Jobs in the fax server stays in a "Pending" state with the message "Waiting for service". Any thoughts? Thanks, Rudy Melgarejo 949-595-2086 rudmel@tropitone.com

What ''Fax server'' is good?


Hi,

1) The first is the obvious one....Microsoft Windows 2003 Server! 2K3 server has basic fax services built right into the O/S for free. This is the perfect solution for a small office such as a real estate office or doctor's office. All you need is a basic fax/modem in the server, and you're ready to go. Server 2k3 can be configured to route faxes to a particular email address, print the faxes to a network printer, or store the faxes in .TIF format on a network share, or any combination of the three.

The disadvantage of this setup is that it does not distinguish between users or phone numbers. ALL incoming faxes will be routed to the same email address. Again, this is why I say it is perfect for a small office. My smaller customers use this method to simply route all faxes to a receptionist, who in turn reads the fax, figures out who it's for, and then forwards it on to the appropriate recipient. The fax server does not support multiple trunking phone lines and does not distinguish between recipients or senders, but treats all faxes the same. SBS 2k3 also supports this feature. Server 2000 does not support this feature, and no add-ins are available to add it, to my knowledge.

The MS software allows you to send a basic fax if it is properly formatted. I believe it only accepts .TIF files, but this is easily verifiable on Microsoft's website.

2) The big boomer in the faxing industry is called RIGHTFAX. This is a completely different animal than the basic little faxing package that comes with windows. Rightfax is quite expensive to set up, deploy, and support from Captaris is also expensive. However, the software is very powerful. The main difference is that RIGHTFAX can distinguish between incoming and outgoing faxes, and routes faxes directly to the users.

First, you to set up and reserve from the phone company a range of phone numbers that all "trunk" (or ring) to the same physical location. For example, I have ONE phone line coming into the building, but I want that ONE line to have 100 different phone numbers. So Sprint will set me up with all the numbers from 555-5000 to 555-5100 and they all ring to the same line.

Then RIGHTFAX does its magic. Using a special kind of "super modem" called a Brooktrout board, it can actually receive faxes on all of these lines. (100 lines is not the limit, I'm just using that as my example, the limit is crazy high, like over a thousand lines) Then, based on the phone number that was dialed, it can route the call to the appropriate user. It integrates in with Active Directory AND MS Exchange, so it can email faxes directly to Exchange recipients. It's truly amazing that it works at all, but it is very consistent.

Outgoing faxes are even more impressive. RIGHTFAX supports faxing in a variety of formats. You can feed it an MS Word document, .TIF, .jpg, excel files, Raw text, whatever...and it automatically converts it to fax format before sending it. The only format that is not supported is .PDF, but it is available as an add-in for an extra cost.

There are multiple ways to send faxes, also. The best thing about it is that it adds a button into MS Outlook. When you click it, you create your fax just like you'd create an email, including attachments, and when you click send, it is faxed automatically through the server. This is especially cool because it reads Exchange data, so you can pick a user off an exchange or outlook contact list, and the fax server will automatically use whatever phone number it finds in the "fax" field. It even puts the user's custom (virtual) phone number on the outgoing fax for easy replies. You can also print to a fax machine, or use their little quick fax utility to send one-time faxes. There are a lot of great options for sending.

The user interface on the server modules is a bit clunky, but you get used to it. Also, like I said, the software becomes expensive VERY quickly, especially if you figure in all the add-ins you need, plus the trunking lines from the phone company. It's not for everyone, but it's extremely powerful and versatile if deployed properly.

Their tech support is pretty good, they got me up and running in a week or so, and were extremely knowledgeable about their product.

I'm not sure if there's anything more specific that you wanted to know about the software, I could go on for hours, it's extremely complicated. But, if you have any more questions about either of those platforms, let me know!

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

If you had to virtualize a Windows NT server on a server running Server 2003, would you go with VMWare or Microsoft's Virtual Server 2005? Just curious what folks' preference is. TIA -


I prefer another box running NT Server, to be honest. But personally I would go with Microsoft Virtual Server. Ive found that one to be more stable in a server environment. My one experience with VMWare on a server was very blue and crashy.

How do i start tomcat server?


I ll share config steps that I use:
1) After installing the Tomcat server set the environment variables in the following way :-

a)var name:path
var value:C:\Java\jdk1.5\bin;C:\Tomcat 5.5\bin

b)var name:classpath
C:\Tomcat 5.5\webapps;C:\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\servlet-api.jar

c)var name:JAVA_HOME
var value:C:\Java\jdk1.5

d)var name:CATALINA_HOME
Var Values:C:\Tomcat 5.5

2)After setting these variables check to see if the server is running by typing "http://localhost:8080/" in the web browser.

3)If you can see the Apache Tomcat page with the message "If you're seeing this page via a web browser, it means you've setup Tomcat successfully. Congratulations!" then everything is fine & server is well configured.

I havent tried it on Win 2000 yet, these steps I use to configure Tomcat on Win XP & Vista, hope this proves to be of some help to you too.

Hello,

How big if your environment? How many users? Do you have remote access needs? If your environment is under 75 users then you might want to consider moving to Windows Small Business Server. It's a great little package that includes Exchange with it. You can also get the premium edition which includes Sharepoint.

Don't forget licensing needs during this whole process too. You want to make sure you are covered properly with software licenses from Microsoft when making the migration.

The hardware specs seem adequate but it will depend on the amount of users in your environment and workload for it.

I've included three links to different options for migration:

This link is pretty good to explain using the Microsoft tool.

http://www.petri.co.il/active_directory_migration_tool_usage_w2k_windows_2003.htm

This link provides info on the swing migration which is a bit more popular in the small business arena. Works pretty good. I've done it a few times.
http://www.sbsmigration.com/pages/14/

This link is for Acronis products that allow for easy ghosting or copying of data from one server to another. The good thing about this tool is that your SIDs are kept the same. So I don't know if its a big deal (depends on your environment size) but it can be a pain to rejoin workstations to a domain if new servers are added without successfully moving necessary settings. I've used this tool a few times. It's quick and easy.

I look forward to hearing more from you. Please update me on the questions I asked and if I can help further I will be glad too. Don't forget to rate the solutions once we're done! Thanks.
