Venta4Net™ key features – details

Client-Server network technology

Faxes and voice messages can be sent from any networked computer even if you have a single modem and a telephone line

Message delivery tasks created by users on client computers are transferred to the server and scheduled. The server processes the schedule and sends messages.

The connection between clients and the server uses the TCP/IP protocol

The program operates in a network environment under the TCP/IP protocol.

Customizable user rights

User rights determine the body of actions that the user is allowed to perform when working with the program, and vise versa, the actions that are not allowed for him or her to perform. User rights also determine the accessibility of specific information.

There are three predetermined categories of user rights: the User, the Dispatcher and the Administrator. The User can send messages, view records in the server log book and schedule related to his or her tasks. The Dispatcher rights allow receiving all incoming messages for further dispatching to other users. The Administrator has access to all incoming and outgoing messages, he or she can view the entire log book and the entire schedule. Also there is the Custom category, which allows selection of any combination of user rights. (more >>)

Access to the message delivery schedule and log books depends on user rights

For privacy purposes a client may be denied an access to viewing and editing of another's scheduled tasks and/or log book records.

Public (accessible to all users) and personal (client-only) phone books and delivery time masks

Public phone books and public time mask templates can be used on the client ends. Also, personal phone books and time masks can be created.


Send facsimile messages from any Windows application

Fax a document from any Windows application by printing it on the VENTAFAX virtual printer that appears on your system after correct installation of the program.

Manual and automatic facsimile message reception and transmission

Send and receive faxes manually with an established connection, or transmit a fax by dialing a phone number automatically.

Color fax support

Send and receive faxes in full color.

Fax broadcasting

Send a single fax to an entire list of recipients, rather than faxing each person individually.

Text recognition (OCR)

The program supports text recognition (OCR) in fax messages. For text recognition, the program uses Microsoft Office Document Imaging (MODI), a third-party application that is part of the MS Office 2003/2007 packages (not included in MS Office 2010) and of free SharePoint Designer 2007 as well, and could be installed independently (see, Method 2). In order for text recognition to work, make sure this application is really installed.

Built-in scheduler

Scheduled delivery permits delayed delivery of single messages at a specified time, convenient for transmitting mass faxes and voice messages to multiple recipients.

Customizable cover page

Create or customize cover pages using the cover page editor.

Convert incoming faxes to PDF documents

Automatically convert incoming faxes into PDF format.

Fax priority system

Assign a priority to each outgoing fax. If several faxes are waiting to be sent, higher priority documents will be faxed first.

V.34 Fax (Super G3) Protocol

Venta4Net is one of a handful of software products that support the high-speed (up to 33600 bps) V.34 Fax (Super G3) protocol. Tested with MultiTech V.34 fax (Super G3) modem models and RockForce multimodem boards from MainPine.

Answering machine

Voice/Data/Fax mode recognition

When Venta4Net identifies an incoming ring, it tries to detect whether it is an attempt to transmit a fax or whether it is a voice call. Either Facsimile or Voice message reception mode is enabled automatically depending on which type of call it is. In the event a data call is detected, the call can be transferred to an awaiting application, such as Window Remote Access Server.

Remote DTMF control

Operate your answering machine remotely using tone commands, for example, to check new voice messages.

Voice mailbox support

With Venta4Net, create as many personal mailboxes as you wish. A mailbox can be accessed using answering machine remote control commands.

Distinctive Ring

Venta4Net offers Distinctive Ring services (if supported by your modem) – even in Windows 2000 and Windows XP! (more >>)

Caller ID

The black-list and white-list directories

Use these directories to filter incoming calls based on a caller's phone number.

Phone number voicing

Identified phone numbers can be played aloud via a computer sound device.

Answering machine setting redefinition

Use different answering machine greetings and other settings depending on the incoming phone number identified.

Caller data display

Both phone number and caller information from a Venta4Net directory can be displayed in a special window.


Telephone conversation recording

Record a sound file of your telephone conversation on a hard disk.

Speakerphone (speak on a modem)

Speak on your voice modem instead of a telephone. (Note: some modems do not support this feature.)

Announcement prior to sending a fax

If the program detects a voice answer upon sending out a fax, a pre-recorded message can be played, for example, "Press the Start button on your fax machine now".

Playing back text files using a speech synthesis engine (TTS)

The program can play both pre-prepared sound files (*.WAV) and text files (*.TXT or *.MIX) via the modem on the telephone line or the computer's sound device. In the latter case what is known as 'text-to-speech' (TTS) translation takes place. (more >>)

Integration with e-mail

Automatic notification of incoming messages and forwarding these messages by e-mail

You can send notification of incoming messages - and forward the messages themselves - to multiple e-mail addresses following user-specified rules. Notification/forwarding rules can depend on the caller's phone number, fax identifier, message type (fax or voice) and the user's virtual mailbox number.

Sending fax and voice messages as file attachments via email

Send prepared messages by e-mail as attachments.

Integration with other programs

Command line options support

To control Venta4Net from external applications, for example, from the Task Scheduler, it can be started with certain options (modifiers).

Plug-in support

Plug-ins are designed to perform user-specific actions, such as storing information in personal databases.

Other features

Access to Windows Address Book and Outlook Address Book

You can use the Windows and Outlook Address Books as Venta4Net phonebooks.

Repeated Dialing

Reach your party easily even when their phone number is always busy. The program can detect "busy" signals, even if your modem is unable to.
