WinFax Pro v.10

I'm considering purchasing this software. Not being a "buff", will it work with broadband? I'm a homeuser with only one phone line, I'm with Pipex with Speedtouch 330 modem, and my o/s is Win 2000 Pro. Will the software work?

on a broadband connection - a fax goes as an analogue transmission, and broadband is a digital technology.

Having said that, your Pipex connection shares the single phone line, and you'll be able to send analogue faxes down the line via a normal analogue modem - the one you used before you had the Pipex ADSL service. Most people keep the internal modem when they convert to broadband - just in case - and all you need to do is tell Winfax Pro to use that modem for outbound and inbound fax transmissions during the configuration part of the setup procedure.

No it will not work on BB. WinFax or any other fax sending software can only send faxes via the modem. Unless you use a Cable BB then to send a fax you will need to switch the cables. I may be proved wrong about this but I think I am right in what I am saying..

As stated before, you can only send faxes via your ordinary 56k modem.

I have Pipex broadband with a USB Alcatel ADSL modem. The connecting lead for this is plugged into the appropriate socket of the microfilter. The lead from the inbuilt modem of the PC plugged into a dual adaptor on the phone connection socket. The other socket of the dual adaptor is connected to a phone. This works fine.

Obviously, I cannot use the phone when sending or receiving faxes. I use Winfax Pro v.10, which is very good, and there are some free fax software programmes around, although I have not tried them.

I have just gone over to Broadband - is this why the built in fax with Windows XP won't work?
