The Validation tab allows additional validation processing to be configured. Most of these options are disabled by default. Those options are intended for larger fax operations that need to validate subscriber information against custom databases and/or Active Directory.

The typical gateway settings will be the defaults. Select none for validation options and pass through for validation methods when validation will not be used. The other validation options allow for custom validation of the sender’s name and password or email address either using a database look-up, SQL procedure, or Active Directory. Database or SQL procedure validation requires a Microsoft Universal Data Link file with appropriate connection settings for the database. The user may then select the table and fields or SQL procedure to use in validation. These settings are ignored by the standard gateway.
