    Hi,
    I'm hoping to delve into the fax features that comes with SBS 2003, but
    first must get an external fax/modem. I read in some SBS book (I think it
    was SBS2003 Best Practices by Harry Brelsford) that US Robotics v.everything
    is a good choice. Can anyone tell me if the US Robotics model USR3453B is
    compatible to function with SBS2003? Or tell me other brands/ models?
    Thank you.
    Thomas

    I don't know about others, but from experiance it's a crap shoot with Modems
    (Roll of the Dice)
    I'd have to say i've had better luck with USR modems but other than that
    it's Luck for me
    (I think part of my problem is parts of town have old Phone lines with PAPER
    insulation.)

    My Suggestion is Keep the Reciept, try it and if works Keep it, if not Try
    another model..
    (Sorry I can't be more specific, but that's what has happend with me and
    modems)

    I have used the Multitech MT5656ZDX multiple times on SBS 2003 networks for
    faxing.

    The USR v.everything modem might have a few more features for 3x the price.
    If you want an external fax/modem that just works try the MultiTech.

    the USR3453B has the V.Everything technology in it.

    We have successfully used the USR5686E on every SBS2003 install we've done.
    It's worked flawlessly. And at $80, it's a bargain too. Just be sure to
    also buy the serial modem cable as it's not included with the modem.
