Several attempts to send a fax using the above printer was made following the users manual instructions that came with the printer. At the end of each attempt, a message that referred to a port being unavailable was received. Anyone have any ideas what can be the problem.
I have the Lexmark X5150, and you will require the installation cd, as the fax facility option is hidden away on the cd. It is not a case of just using the fax button on the printer facia.I would mention that I contacted Lexmark on this issue, and in the end I didn't bother with it, because I found that other downloads were required.
As previously mentioned, you will need a dial-up service and modem for the fax facility.
Thank you everyone for your contributions and responses to my question.
Using the fax facility is just something I thought I would try. What does unsettle me a little is that, nowhere in the users manual is there any referrence made to the fact that a fax cannot be sent if you have broadband.
They (Lexmark) mush think that ordinary people are already aware of thish. I better carry on partying.
Happy New Year to all
