fax

Is there a way to set up the XP fax software to send over my broadband connection. It seems to look for a standard 56K modem.

I think it's meant to, i don't think it sends the fax over the web, i think that ur pc and 56k modem emulate a fax machine and dial directly to the receiving fax machine, not 100% sure though as I've never used it.

Platty is spot on, When you dial the remote fax machine the combination of your PC and dial up modem acts as a Group 3 fax machine.

If you're very brave you can set up your modem to to accept ringing in and receive faxes too but it's a security hole you could drive a bus through!

Thanks. That's pretty much wht I thought. I'll have to consider putting a 56K modem back in, if i really want the functionality.

Receiving faxes is no problem, i use the FOL fax2emailservice so already have a separate fax number.
