Fax Configuration

Postby JaxIzer » Mon Oct 21, 2002 1:34 pm

I'm trying to get WinFax & Saplpd to work together....followed all the doc's on setting this up. However, one area I am unclear on is the configuration w/in SPAD. If I designate the device's Host Spool Access Method as S - for Print on LPDHost via SAP Protocol, it keeps asking for a Switching Computer even after I enter the default Spool Server.

What/Where is the Switching Computer?

Thanks in advance!

1)Make sure you have the IP address of the WINFAX machine w/ LPD installed in the HOSTS file

2) In SPAD - make sure you have SAPWIN as device type - - make sure you have the destination host (should be same as what you put in hosts file from (1) above. Device class - - make sure you have F for access method is S......

See if you have all this set

The switching computer is where your saplpd + sapfax.dll is residing in. This will need to reside in your winfax pro server.
