Sender number when receiving

reda saouri Apr 12, 2013 11:48AM EDT


When I receive fax (I'm using faxman sdk), I want to know if there's a way to know the sender phone number ?
I use c# (visual studio 2010)

private void faxMan1_FaxReceived(object sender, FaxEventArgs args)
Fax receivedFax = args.Fax;
//retreive sender phone...

Thank you

I want to say that I get details when receiving fax (files, time, ...) but the sender phone is empty ! it's not normal because the fax number of the sender is not hidden

The Sender's fax number is not part of the Fax protocol, you would need callerid to obtain that which is not supported by FaxMan in the current release nor supported by all modems.

You can get the Remote Fax ID which is generally set to the phone # but can be other alpha character data as well from the Fax.RemoteID property.

Thanks for your interest in our products and please let us know if you have any questions.
