Enable a Fax Device to Send

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

By default, a fax device is enabled to send when it is installed. However, if needed, you can also enable a device to send later. As part of this process, you can specify an optional Transmitting Subscriber ID (TSID) string, a text string that identifies the sender of a fax. The identification information typically appears in the banner in a fax message to help the recipient determine where the fax originated.

To enable a fax device to send
  1. Open Fax Service Manager.

  2. In the left pane, double-click Devices and Providers, and then click Devices.

  3. In the right pane, right-click the device you want to configure, and then click Send.

  4. To configure a TSID, right-click the device you want to configure, and then click Properties.

  5. On the General tab, in Transmitting Subscriber ID (TSID), type a TSID string. This string is limited to 20 characters.

  6. Later, if you want to disable the fax device from sending faxes, right-click the device, and then click Send to clear the check mark.

Additional considerations

  • To configure fax components, you must be a member of the Administrators group or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

  • To open Fax Service Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Fax Service Manager.
