    Fax from XP (XP)

    I have two questions.
    I want to use the fax utility in XP.
    Every time I try to set this up, XP is asking about my modem.
    I don't have one,I am on a lan connection.
    Is there a way around this.


    The other question is about printing.
    We print from a DOS program to two networked printers.
    The connection is via a netport printer. Checking on the Win98 machines they're mapped to LPT3ServerEpson-LQ570

    I can print from windowsXP but cannot from the DOS program.
    Does anyone have a solution for this.

    So by this, is it not possible unless I have a modem.
    I can E.Mail and access the Internet via the lan !!

    Is there another PC or server on you lan with a modem?

    If you are looking for an Internet fax service, I believe there may be some info in this thread from the W98 forum.

    Don't forget, nothing is free. If you are looking for a totally cost free way to send faxes whilst connected to the Internet, I wouldn't hold your breath.

    For Internet fax service, you can try eFax.com.
    Sorry, it's not free anymore...
