EPiFAX 1.0 released
After being a well kept secret in the Making Waves toolbox for many years we are now very happy to be able to share this EPiServer module with you on EPiCode. We hope it will be as popular with your customers as it has been with ours.
Haven’t you always wished you could be able to send a fax straight from your EPiServer site? Well with EPiFAX you can! Now you can deliver those great reports from EPiServer’s “Report Center” straight to your customers fax machine with a simple scheduled job! Or how about sending a copy of the page you just published to your fax machine to ensure a paper backup copy in case your site crashes! The uses are endless.
1: EPiFAX fax = new EPiFAX();
2: string xhtml = fax.RenderPageToXhtml(CurrentPage);
3: fax.SendFAX(22206021, xhtml);
How it works:
By using the the built in EPiFAX object you can call the methods SendFAX(int ToPhoneNumber, string XHTML) and SendFax(int ToPhoneNumber, string CoverSheetXHTML, string XHTML). It couldn’t be simpler! Just remember to connect your fax modem to the serial port of your server, and to connect your analog phone line to the “line in” port on your fax modem. Also make sure that your modem is set up to use pulse dialing.
To receive a floppy disk with the EPiFAX module, please send a fax to + 47 22 20 60 21. Please mark the fax “EPiFax 1.0 Att:Alexander Haneng” and remember to include your name and postal address.
