This article provides a list of fax devices that are supported by FaxMaker to be used in a virtual environment. It will also explain that FaxMaker does not support a physical device, such as a fax modem, in a virtual environment. This could lead to faxes not working when using a physical device in a virtual server.
Any virtualized FaxMaker installation.
FaxMaker can be installed in any virtual environment as long as the system requirements are met.
Online Fax Services:
Example: etherFAX, GFI Online Fax Service.
Fax Over IP (FOIP):
Example: XCAPI, Dialogic Brooktrout SR140.
FaxMaker does not support the use of physical devices with virtual machine servers. This does not mean it will not work as many are able to map a COM port through a hypervisor to an individual server. It is not supported by GFI Support because in our testing with various physical fax devices and hypervisors, the results were inconsistent in having a successful outcome.
After reviewing the information above, you will know what devices FaxMaker supports when being used in a virtual environment.
