MarkView Fax Server - Enabling debug logging for Brooktrout TR1034 Fax Boards



How do you supply Brooktrout debugging information when MarkView Fax Server relies on Brooktrout TR1034 fax boards?

Note: These log files grow very quickly. If you are able to reproduce the error in question you should enable debugging, reproduce the error, and then disable debugging. If the error is not easily reproducible, you should monitor the file sizes to insure that they do not get too large to transfer. 10MB is a good limit to shoot for. If the files get too large, stop MarkView Fax Server and rename the files before restarting.

  1. Stop MarkView Fax Server.
  2. In windows explorer, change directory to the following folder (or the nondefault directory in which you installed MarkView Fax Server):
