Editor's review

In this application a server acts as the communication gateway. A fax or multiple ones can be supported. Other client computers connected to the server on a network can communicate with outside world with faxes and voice messages.

Pros: Venta4Net is a network fax and voice messaging solution and can be used on Windows 98/ME, NT 4.0, 2000 and XP operating systems. In the multi-line configuration this application can support up to 32 lines from the server. Communications between clients and servers are TCP/IP based. A variety of fax/modems are supported as are the Caller Id and distinctive ring tone features.

Outgoing communications are queued on the server and scheduled. Control of the schedule is with users with appropriate rights, as is whether one can view the public address book only or special lists of contacts or viewing and changing log book entries. Public and personal phone books can be used for sending out fax and voice messages.

Text to speech technology is supported that helps faxes and emails being read out on remote access. WAV files are used for announcements and getting messages and calls recorded. Distinctive ring tones also can be supported if the modem card on the machine supports it. Voice mail box and auto detection of fax/voice/data calls are supported. Access to the fax is via a virtual printer for all windows applications.

The user interface is designed as a real life fax machine. This is surrounded by the menus and controls on top and a explorer like files tree on the left. The files include the announcement contents, log books and some functional tools like the scheduler, script editor and a message manager.

Cons: No obvious problems detected.

Overall a fairly well designed and easy to use application, it is rated at 4 stars.

Publisher's description

Venta4Net is a network fax and voice messaging solution based on the same technology as the well-known single-user VentaFax software and can be used on Windows 98/ME, NT 4.0, 2000 and XP operating systems.
Venta4Net allows sending faxes and voice messages from any networked computer (client) via a modem (or modems) installed in the single computer (server). The connection between clients and the server uses the TCP/IP protocol. Single line and multi-line (up to 32 telephone lines!) versions are available.
Four client workstations are supported in the basic installation and can be increased. Each task created by users is transferred to the server and is placed in the schedule. The delivery system processes the schedule and performs the message delivery. Access to the message delivery schedule and logbooks depends on user rights. For privacy purposes, a client may be denied access to view and edit another's scheduled tasks and/or log book records. Received messages (depending on settings) can be addressed to one or several users. User rights determine the actions that a user is allowed to perform when working with the program. User rights also determine the accessibility of specific information. Access to the message delivery schedule and log books depends on user rights.
Public (accessible to all users) and personal phonebooks and delivery time masks can be used. The software is compatible with a variety of faxmodems. It supports the additional capabilities of several modems such as caller's number delivery (Caller ID) and distinctive ring service. The time-limited and feature-limited evaluation version of the program is available for testing and studying the interaction between the server and client ends of the program in the local area network as well as for testing the interaction between the program and your faxmodem.
