WinFax PRO clients with NET SatisFAXtion fax server software November 22nd, 2009
Notice to WinFax PRO users that are using WinFax PRO clients with NET SatisFAXtion server software and are considering upgrading to version 8.5 or 8.6.
FaxBack has recently released version 8.6 of NET SatisFAXtion server software. WinFax PRO client support has been completely omitted in the documentation of versions 8.5 and 8.6. The last version that mentioned the ability to connect WinFax as a client was version 8.1.
We couldn’t find any upgrade warnings in the 8.5 or 8.6 upgrade or administration documentation for users that could possibily upgrade only to find they now have a bunch of client software that won’t connect to NET SatisFAXtion anymore.
It’s obvious that the WinFax client feature has been depreciated since version 8.1, but it’s possible that WinFax PRO clients are still “unofficially supported” in versions 8.5 and 8.6 with use of the latest WinFax Connector.
If you have any additional details regarding compatibility with these versions please let us know. We contacted FaxBack directly and received a reply that WinFax PRO connector had not been supported since version 8.0 (while we found a WinFax Connector update released about 2 years after the release of 8.0? and 8.1 mentions it in the documentation.
We do know that NET SatisFAXtion version 8.0 will be retired December 31, 2009.
