Screen Shots

The following screen shots appear in the FMS 2 Data Sheet (see links on left) where they are explained further. The descriptions below are intended to assist members of the press in writing captions for these screen shots when used in their stories.

Click on the thumbnail below to see (or download) the high-resolution version. All hi-res images are stored in GIF format since this is far more appropriate for screen shots than JPEG. If, however, you need JPEG (or another format), please do not hesitate to ask Please also contact us should you need other screen shots or more information.

Hints on how to download the high-resolution version using most browsers:

  1. Click on the thumbnail of the screen shot you wish to download. This will display the full-sized high-resolution version.
  2. Point at the hi-res version and click using the right mouse button. This will display a menu, one item of which ought to be something like Save Image As. Select that item.
  3. Select the directory in which you wish to save the screen shot.
  4. If you have any problems with this, please send email to indicating which screen shot(s) you are interested in (and in which format - GIF, JPEG, or ???) and we'll email them to you as soon as possible.

Screen shot #1

Microsoft's Imaging for Windows application showing a fax that has been received using FMS 2.

Note that this is not, strictly speaking, a screen shot of FMS itself but rather a screen shot of a utility included with Windows that can be used to view faxes received and delivered by FMS 2.

This is included to illustrate how users on Windows desktops can view, print, and manage faxes that are received using FMS 2.

Although FMS 2 runs on Linux and UNIX servers, it is fully compatible with, and interoperates with, Microsoft Windows desktop. By using industry standard file formats to deliver faxes, FMS makes it possible to use existing tools to handle faxes -- in this example, Microsoft's Imaging for Windows. This is in contrast to some fax software products that use proprietary file formats which require special non-standard fax viewers to be installed and used, unnecessarily increasing the effort, complexity, and clutter on the user's computer.

Screen shot #2

FMS 2 displaying a received fax through a web browser showing the pull-down list of users that this fax could be routed to.

This is the screen that an FMS 2 user who is responsible for routing received faxes would see when viewing the cover sheet and determining to whom the fax ought to be delivered.

In high-volume installations, faxes would be routed automatically using DID trunks but in smaller offices it may be sufficient to use this manual routing feature of FMS 2.

As can be seen, manual routing using FMS 2 is far more efficient than physically distributing multiple pieces of paper (after sorting and collating them). Not only that, the person routing the fax only sees the first page of the fax -- resulting in enhanced security and increased confidentiality.

This is a screen shot of FMS 2. The browser used in this example is Opera but FMS 2 works with most browsers (i.e. Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla, etc.)

Screen shot #3

The FMS 2 Windows Print Driver Dialog used to enter the name and fax number of the recipient(s).

This is the window that the Microsoft Windows user sees after he has "printed to fax". It enables the user to enter the name, company, and fax number of the recipient(s) for the fax. Alternatively, it enables the user to search his Microsoft Outlook address book to obtain this information.

Once the fax has been addressed, the user clicks on the Send button and is dropped into his email client (Microsoft Outlook or whatever) to complete the fax (i.e. add a coversheet message, additional email recipients, additional attachments, etc.)

This is a screen shot of an FMS 2 component.

Screen shot #4

Microsoft Outlook after it has been launched by the FMS 2 Windows Print Driver showing the fax-email address and attachment automatically inserted by FMS.

This is not a screen shot of FMS, rather it is a screen shot of an email client (in this case Microsoft Outlook) that has been launched by FMS.

One of the key features of FMS 2 is that it builds on the user's existing email infrastructure. This means that unlike older client/server fax products that require the installation and use of a proprietary fax client on every user's desktop, FMS 2 interoperates with the user's existing email client. Fax services delivered to the desktop without the cost, headache, or administrative overhead of yet another piece of desktop software (the proprietary fax client).

Screen shot #5

The FMS 2 main administration page. From this page the FMS administrator can select the many options for routing faxes, managing the outbound fax queue, and configuring the FMS server.

This is a screen shot of FMS 2. The browser used in this example is Opera but FMS 2 works with most browsers (i.e. Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla, etc.)
