The Basics

Hosted Fax provides the convenience of a private fax machine right in your browser or email client. Hosted Fax works with your VoIP solution, and is managed in the web-based Customer Administration Portal.

Hosted Fax is available in two variations depending on how many users within your company are needed:

  • Personal Hosted Fax - assigned to one user and can be used like a personal fax machine.
  • Shared Hosted Fax - assigned to multiple users and can be used like a company fax machine.

Log-in

Both Personal and Shared Hosted Fax are accessed the same way:

  • Go to vip.anpi.com.
  • Enter username and password.
  • If you do not have your username and password, please contact your company administrator.
  • Locate the Hosted Fax widget in the Other Services section
  • Your assigned fax number is located in the Hosted Fax widget in your Customer Administration Portal.
