3. Components > Fax Console

Name

Fax Console — \windows\system32\fxsclnt.exe

Synopsis

Start All Programs Accessories Communications Fax Fax Console

The Fax Console is the central interface for sending, receiving, and managing faxes using the Microsoft Fax service and your modem. Start the Fax Monitor (Tools Fax Monitor) to automatically answer incoming calls and receive faxes; to receive a single fax without automatically answering all calls, go to File Receive a fax now.

There are two ways to send a fax using this service. The first, using File Send a Fax (which is the same as running fxssemd.exe or selecting Start All Programs Accessories Communications Fax Send a Fax), walks you through selecting a document and then creating a corresponding fax job. The preferred method of sending a fax, though, is to start the application used to create the original document and print to your fax printer. After your application has sent the document to the fax printer driver, a new Wizard appears and asks you for the recipient name and phone number, as well as any queuing options.
