I want to send a FAX from the my application C# and ASP.net. On the hosting machine the Microsoft Small Business Server is installed.
Now my question are:
1) Which DLL/API i have to use to send the FAX from C# ?
2) Which type of hardware like modem etc we have to use for sending the FAX (Please tell me the name and configuration of the modem so that i can purchase it)?

you need to use Tapi (Telephony App Prg Interf) 3.x. Tapi 3.x is a COM as dll in the Windows systems.
Tapi was created by Microsoft and IBM in order to offer programmers an unified API for accessing phone, fax, email.
Every modem, fax, phone producer may or may not implement Tapi X.X interface.
When u buy the hardware ask if implemets and how much. For fax i think that u can use Fax and Modem TSP provider that comes with Windows.
Go to Phone and Modem options in Control Panel and u can see the list of TSP (telephony service provider) installed on your system.
Other important thing: u can designate a machine as Telephony server and use tapi extensions (send commands and receive events) remotelly.
On Microsoft page is a statement that Tapi 3.x does not work with managed code, but is not true. I\v implemented a Phone Ware server that is now in production.

I am sending FAX using "Fax Service Extended COM reference". I am able to send the FAX successfully but not able to apply the phone and modem dialing rules.
Suppose from my office we have to dial 0 before dialing any number. If i want to dial a number like 5061719, its a local number so for dialing this number i have to dial 0-5061719.
Can any body suggest me how can i use the dialing rule when i send a fax?

I got the answer of my question.
we can only apply the dialing rule if the FAX number is in the internation format like [ +91 (172) 50614556 ].
If any body facing any problem related to FAX, Please contact me
