Hi XpUser,

google search brought me Hylafax which is too heavy for my simple job. It is for fax server. I ran it about 6~7 years ago on Linux.

What I need is a simple fax software to send and receive fax via modem similar to Symantec WinFax which I ran several years ago before I migrated to Linux and Unix.

I'll test it later. Hoping that it is not so complicate as Hylafax.

Tks.

Have you tried to use the Fax programme that comes with XP. When I used to do a bit of faxing that's what I used.

Go to Control Panel / Add Or Remove Programs / Add Remove Windows Components / put a tick in Fax Services. Then set it up with your user details. It's easy to use as well...

Hi Wombat and jefro,

Tks for your advice.

I have been looking around the "fax program" coming with WinXP and can't find it. I think I haven't installed it. I'll check again as advised. Tks
