Connect

FaxServer.Connect method

Applies to: desktop apps only

The Connect method connects a fax client application to the specified fax server. Before accessing most interfaces that begin with IFax, the application must call this method to initiate a connection with an active fax server. A fax server connection is not required to access an IFaxTiff interface.

Syntax

  ByVal ServerName As String _
) As Long

Parameters

Type: String

Specifies a null-terminated string that contains the name of the target fax server. If this parameter is Null, the method connects the application to the fax server on the local computer. See Connecting to a Fax Server for limitations on connecting to remote servers.
