    Hello all

    I'm trying to find out which fax modems preferably external, are working
    with W2K3 fax service exept those that are listed in the compatibility list
    and Brooktrout.
    I tryed zyxel and usrobotics with lots of faxes received partially or not
    received at all, while a simple fax machine gets everything right.

  2. I've gone through quite a few including certified USR Internals for Win 2003.
    The best I've found yet is USR Courrier V.Everything Externals, but they
    still don't work great (just OK). It appears that you need to buy a
    Brooktrout Board -- seems awfully stupid that they don't tell you up front
    that x,y, and z are suppored and actually work. Instead they tell you what
    is certified but fail to mention that it doesn't work very well.

    From my experience, I've not used anything that works as good as a real fax
    machine, but it's my expectation that Brooktrout works. $425 or so for 2
    lines at 14.4K and like $1400 for 2 lines at v.34 speeds. Seems a bit absurd
    to spend so much, but I think that's the answer. I'm buying one and I'll
    post back with my results.

    Brooktrout claims to have a 70% market share which leads me to believe there
    is a reason why -- and the reason clearly isn't price.
