    TODAY'S WORD: fax server

    A fax server (or faxserver) is a system installed in a local area
    network (LAN) server that allows computer users who are attached to
    the LAN to send and receive fax messages. Fax messages can be stored
    as printable word processing, graphics, database, or spreadsheet
    files. Scanned documents can be sent as fax messages, allowing a
    computer and scanner to effectively emulate a dedicated fax machine.

    A fax server is composed of a computer with a fax program, a fax
    modem (a modem capable of sending and receiving fax signals as well
    as conventional Internet data), a connection to the Internet or a
    telephone line, and connections to the LAN users.

    There are several advantages to a fax server when compared with an
    ordinary fax machine. A single fax server can emulate multiple fax
    machines (one for each network user), thereby reducing overhead. Some
    functions can be automated. For example, a business fax server can
    automatically send invoices and purchase orders to customers and
    suppliers at specified times. Received faxes can be automatically
    stored as files on the server, and retrieved later by network users.
    In addition, a fax server can function without paper, reducing
    clutter and eliminating the need to continually check paper trays.

    The term "fax server" is sometimes used to describe a program that
    enables a computer to send and receive fax messages.
