Web Client Printer Driver

The GFI FaxMaker Web Client Printer enables users to print documents on their machines before sending the fax using the Web Client. This ensures that file conversion processing on the GFI FaxMaker server is minimized. This also enables users to use native applications to print documents which cannot be converted on the GFI FaxMaker server. For example, users that have Adobe InDesign installed on their machines, can fax Adobe InDesign documents by printing documents to the GFI FaxMaker Web Printer.
