Fax Voip Console Application

Parent Previous Next

To open Fax Voip Console, click Start, point to Fax Voip T38 Fax & Voice, and then click Fax Voip Console. Alternatively, you can select the Fax Voip Console command in the Fax Voip tray menu.


Fax Voip Console supports two modes of user interface: modern Ribbon mode and old-style Classic Toolbar mode.


Ribbon interface used by default after installation on Windows 7 or later. It is based on using Windows Ribbon Framework. This interface is similar to that used in the Windows Explorer, Paint and Wordpad. To enable Ribbon interface on Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, see notes below in this chapter.



Fax Voip Console – Ribbon mode



Classic Toolbar mode is maintained mainly for backward compatibility with old operating systems such as Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. At the same time you can use this mode on all other operating systems on your preference. In this mode the classic menu bar and toolbar are available. This interface is similar to that used in the Windows Fax and Scan software.



Fax Voip Console – Classic Toolbar mode



The Fax Voip Console application allows you to manage all outgoing and incoming faxes and audio messages, sent or received using Fax Voip built-in VOIP/ISDN Fax/Audio Lines. In the Fax Voip Console you can also view a log of incoming calls, for which the Fax on Demand (using built-in lines) function was applied. You can also scroll up and down to see the chronological sequence of events.


Received or outgoing faxes can be easily viewed in the Preview Panel. Or you can view the fax in the TIFF viewer software, Adobe Acrobat Reader or SFF viewer software by double-clicking on it.


Outgoing audio messages can be easily listen by using the Preview Panel. To open any audio file in the audio player software, double-click on it.


The entries can be sorted on the any available field. To select the sort field, click on the header of the field and an arrow will appear. Click again on the arrow to sort the list in the ascending or descending order.


You can choose between 3 folders:
