This article provides advice on which driver to use when setting up a Fax Modem or Multi-Port Fax Board.
Choosing which driver to use depends on which driver works best with the modem you are using. Use either:
- GFI fax modem drivers: If you require DTMF routing and plan to use modems (not recommended) then you must use the GFI modem drivers.
- Windows Fax Modem drivers: The Windows modem drivers might work better since GFI cannot offer such a wide range of modem support as Microsoft.
In general, GFI recommends trying both drivers with your modem and choosing the driver that works best.
NOTE: The Microsoft Fax modem drivers have wider modem support and 2D faxing, which can give faster fax transmission to some fax machines. For reliability ensure that you implement a high-quality modem solution.
