Does FaxTalk Multiline Server 8 work with a DSL or Cable Modem?
Currently, the hardware used in DSL and Cable based modems does not support the ability to send and receive faxes or perform voice
messaging operations. Until DSL and Cable modems support the commands necessary for software such as FaxTalk Multiline Server 8
you will not be able to use DSL or cable modems with FaxTalk Multiline Server 8. This is true for all fax and voice messaging software.
Can I order the FaxTalk Multiline Server 8 and have it electronically delivered or does the software have to be shipped to me?
Yes, when you order the software online, you have the option to select ESD Download as the delivery method. This will result in you
being able to download the purchased software directly from the Internet instead of paying for the cost of shipping and waiting for delivery.
Will FaxTalk Multiline Server 8 answer the phone when my computer is in sleep mode?
Yes, but this really is an issue that depends entirely on the computer and modem hardware. When a computer is in sleep mode, and
an incoming call occurs, the modem hardware is actually responsible for "waking" up the computer. This is commonly referred to as a
"Wake on Ring" feature. Once the computer has been told to "wake up" by the modem hardware, the FaxTalk Multiline Server 8 software will
be waiting for the modem to report the incoming call and will answer the phone accordingly. You should check with your modem or computer
manufacturer to determine if your modem supports "Wake on Ring" when in sleep mode.
Can FaxTalk Multiline Server 8 answer the phone when I'm logged out of Windows?
Yes, FaxTalk Multiline Server 8 runs as a service under Windows and can answer calls and send faxes while logged out of Windows.
Does FaxTalk Multiline Server 8 support using a scanner to scan documents when creating a fax?
Yes, using a TWAIN-based scanner, you can scan documents directly from the Send a Fax screen.
