Enable a Fax Device to Send
Applies To: Windows Server 2008
By default, a fax device is enabled to send when it is installed. However, 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 used to identify a fax sender to a fax recipient.
To enable a fax device to send
Open Fax Service Manager.
In the left pane, double-click Fax, double-click Devices and Providers, and then click Devices.
In the right pane, right-click the device you want to configure, and then click Send.
To configure a TSID, right-click the device you want to configure, and then click Properties.
On the General tab, in Transmitting Subscriber ID (TSID), type a TSID string. This string is limited to 20 characters.
To configure fax components, you must be a member of the Administrators group or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.
