Faxing with CFPrint

Sep 09, 2008

So you can use cfprint to programmatically print PDFs with a printer installed on the ColdFusion server. What about printing to a Fax machine?

My laptop has a fax modem installed on it and in my available 'Printers and Faxes' I have a 'Fax' icon. When calling this directly I can easily fax out a document.

CFPrint sees the Fax machine and I can send a PDF document to it, but it then calls up the Fax wizard to ask about the phone number, etc. So I just need to pass that information along when I make the cfprint call. Problem is that the fax related attributes are not available with the cfprint tag, even in the attribute structure which contains many other printer settings.

Does any one know of a way to get this to work? If not, I imagine it wouldn't be too hard to include those options in the next release of ColdFusion.
