I am using LightningFAX by Interstar and a VG200

to provide distributed faxing for my users.

It is working great for me.

I hope that helped.

Re: Unity fax solution

Check out this URL:

It contains a list of qualified 3rd party fax products which integrate with Unity.

In essence, what's needed to qualify is:

1. The fax server must have an Exchange Gateway component that's responsible for handling inbound & outbound faxmail messages.

2. For Unity to be able to identify new faxes in the Inbox, the faxes must arrive with a distinct message class, such as IPM.Note.Fax

3. For Unity to be able to deliver faxmail & email to a fax machine, the fax server must support the following send format: [FAX:name@number]

Hopefully this information is helpful. I've used Lightning Fax (, it works well and offers powerful administrative features. RightFax ( is another good choice, they have an informative web site and the product is considered very user-friendly.
