A business I assist with wants to move their fax line from their big copy/print/fax machine to their server and setup a Fax Server Role. Their server is a Dell blade server running Server 2008 R2 with no modem installed. So, I hooked up a new US Robotics 5686G Fax Modem with a serial RS232 Modem Cable to the server. After a server restart, the modem still is not being recognized as a connected device. According to the USR website, Server 2008 will provide its own device driver automatically and be recognized.

Any thoughts, ideas, etc.?

Thanks for any help!
