We are still running the Fax for Domino product. Alas, this requires an NT server. Probably due to the special cards going into it. We use Brooktrout. This gives us dialout via built in modems on the cards. What these cards also give is is Direct Inward Dialing, or DID, capability. Therefore we have a bank of 40 phone numbers feeding in on two lines into the cards. You dial my fax number, it goes onto one of the two lines, into one of the cards in the PC. From there it appears as a TIF attachment on a Notes email sent directly to me. This is all well and good. However the NT, (remember Nice Try?), locks up repeatedly. The CEO is pushing to move from a PC based solution to an AS/400 based solution, (ain't this a great place to work!). However I am not sure if the 400 has the right mix of software/hardware to support this. For one thing I can't purchase a Fax for Domino product that is 400 based. IBM suggests integrating FAX/400 with Domino. They talk about this in a redbook available at http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/pubs/pdfs/redbooks/sg245181.pdf My biggest concern with this is a belief on my part that this would require either: 1) TSI routing. This would route based on the little phone number or description that prints at the top of the fax. I don't like this because normally it is the senders phone number and we have the same sender sending to multiple destinations within our company. 2) Tone routing. Is this a matter of punching tone buttons after the fax modem starts squealing? This sounds like manual faxing to me. This would be unacceptable for the majority of people who fax to us.
