Windows Simple SFTP Server

I had been looking for a simple stand-alone SFTP server that could run on Windows Server 2003/2008 and didn’t require an installation or reboot. The best solution I’ve found so far is CORE SFTP Server available here.

I’ve tested this SFTP server with Cisco Communications Manager 9.1 (CallManager) and Unity Connection 9.1 with good results.

After using this SFTP server a few more times it seems as though it works some of the time. I would highly recommend either using a Linux based SFTP or SilverSHielD for Windows (mentioned in a previous post).

HP Fax Test

An excellent way to test both sending and receiving faxes is to use the free HP fax service. Remember that this services uses your caller ID to determine what number to send the return fax to.

  1. Simply send a fax to 1-888-HPFAXME (1-888-473-2963).
  2. Within 5 minutes you should receive an incoming fax confirming receipt of your original fax.

Here’s a link to HP’s documentation on this service

Another service I’ve used to generate test faxes from a web browser (not requiring you to have a fax machine) is faxZero.
