What’s new in RightFax 10.6?

- Microsoft SharePoint 2013, including a new RightFax SharePoint App which makes integrating your RightFax Server with SharePoint easy. (RightFax also supports 2007 and 2010)
- Microsoft Office 2013 (RightFax also supports 2007 and 2010) to send faxes directly from Office applications
- All editions of Windows Server 2012, in addition to Windows 2008 and Windows 2008 R2, providing administrators the flexibility to plan their RightFax and Server OS upgrades independently
- Updated Integrations
- The RightFax SAP Connector is an SAP certified solution and RightFax 10.6 will support SAP versions ECC 6 EP4 and ECC 7
- RightFax now supports IBM WebSphere 7 and 7.5
- RightFax 10.6 has improved support for the newest Xerox, HP, and Konica Minolta Multi-Function Devices
Compliance and Security
- RightFax Encryption Module
- A new licensed module which encrypts all fax images in the RightFax image directory, encrypted with TripleDES 128 bit security. Any and all authorised access is fully audited and tracked. Any and all unauthorised access is denied. Helps organisations achieve compliance with regulations such as PCI-DSS and HIPAA.
- Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) Compliant
- RightFax 10.6 is now fully compliant with FIPS.
- RightFax Vault
- A new module that provides scalable, efficient fax archiving, designed for RightFax, which allows customers to address compliance, security requirements with the ability to easily and securely retrieve sent or received faxes.
- RightFax Collectives can support up to 12 RightFax Servers to a single Shared Services Collective environment, which can now propagate settings to any or all other member nodes.
- RightFax has always supported silent or unattended installation of our client applications, but with RightFax 10.6 we’ve raised the bar and made it easier than ever before to rollout RightFax to your client workstations by supporting Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM).
- It’s been a best practice for RightFax administrator’s to set the RightFax services to automatically restart upon failure. The installation of RightFax 10.6 removes the need to manually perform this step as we now install our services to automatically restart in the event of a failure. This will minimise any potential downtime a RightFax Server might encounter, as the RightFax Server will now “take care of itself” by automatically restarting stopped services thus fixing a problem before it affects production.
- RightFax 10.6 introduces an updated Web Based Administration client (WebEFM) that is functional on the following web browsers: IE, Chrome, Safari, Firefox.
- RightFax is compatible with a new Dialogic SDK for interoperability for T.38 FoIP solutions.
Ease of Administration and Use
- RightFax Admin Dashboard now has the ability to monitor an entire Shared Services collective and associated Remote DocTransports from one location. It also includes a history of channel utilisation over time – 24 hour and 30 day rolling view.
- Admins using Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (MS SCOM) can easily integrate with RightFax Alerting and Monitoring for the purpose of monitoring the health of the RightFax Server, which adds performance counters to RightFax Alerting and Monitoring.
- New Enterprise Fax Reporter reports that gives admins the ability to pull a report on Fax Channel Utilisation over time and by group to help identify channel saturation and bottlenecks.
- RightFax 10.6 now fully supports Microsoft User Access Control (UAC).
- Plus many more improvements!

New features in RightFax Version 10.5
Setting the Industry Standard for Speed and Security
New in v10.5, the RightFax Internet Connector marked a significant change in the face of the fax market by offering businesses tangible improvements to the way faxes are transmitted. By providing an internet connection point between two RightFax fax servers, the RightFax Internet Connector enables businesses to:
- Decrease the cost of fax transmission – The RightFax Internet Connector provides a non-telephony route to send faxes to other RightFax users. The fax is routed via the connector to another RightFax Fax Server anywhere in the world, eliminating telephony charges.
- Increase the speed of faxing – Because the fax is transmitted via the RightFax Internet Connector, businesses can now send hundreds of pages exponentially faster than via traditional faxing over the public switched network or PSTN.
- Improve security and privacy – With the RightFax Internet Connector, faxing has never been more secure. Each RightFax fax number used by the RightFax Internet Connector is individually registered and verified, helping to ensure that each number belongs to the intended recipient. Each fax transmission is also encrypted for higher information security and privacy. RightFax is the first solution ever to offer this level of rigor in authenticating fax numbers.
Powerful New Integration Capabilities
OpenText has long been a market leader in providing the most current and extensive set of application and device connectors. RightFax 10.5 expanded on this collection with these updates:

Clear, Easy-to-Use Communications
OpenText strives not only to provide its customers with the most innovative and powerful solutions on the market, but is also the easiest to use. While RightFax 10.5 maintained the original faxed image for compliancy and user familiarity, significant enhancements were made to the product’s look and feel, including:
- Image enhancements RightFax now de-skews incoming fax images to help correct their orientation. In addition, images are de-noised to remove scan artifacts and transmission noise.
- Improved user interface The overall look and feel of the RightFax FaxUtil, Web Client, and Enterprise Fax Manager have been redesigned and updated with new icons to provide a fresh look without changing the functionality to which users are accustomed.
Improved Performance and Scalability
RightFax 10.5 offers businesses several enhancements to help improve performance and scalability in any RightFax environment.
- New hierarchical image file storage Each fax images is stored in its own individual subfolder, facilitating consistent server performance over time.
- Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) for outbound faxes RightFax now leverages MSMQ for scheduling and delivering outbound faxes, which efficiently processes high volumes of documents, and allows full scalability and utilisation of RightFax licensed channels.
