Using PC as a fax machine

  g40 10:40 01 Jul 2004

Does anyone know how easy it is to set up the PC to fax?
I think xp has it built in but apparently its no good?!
Maybe a freebie program that someone has found would be better, cheers, g

See for yourself

'To install the Fax component

Open Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel.

Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
In the Windows Components Wizard, select the Fax Services check box, and then follow the instructions on your screen.'

Of course, to receive a fax, the PC must be switched on.

We use an Olitec SmartMemory modem for faxing. To qualify end's sarcastic remark, it doesn't matter whether the computer is switched on or not. Messages are stored on a Smartcard. The modem can also act as an answering machine as well. Again, the power up state of the computer is immaterial.

(perhaps I should stay away from the forum ), however, in my work environment machines are frequently used to help keep patients alive when recovering from life-threatening problems and, of ocourse " it helps if the machines ARE SWITCHED ON", and working properly else they will do " bugger-all" for the patient.............
