fax software
« on: May 05, 2004, 05:31:24 AM »
What is the recommended fax software that works well with Windows XP Professional?

'Cheyenne Bitware' ver 3.3 works well with Windows 98, and is able to distinguish between a normal incoming telephone call and a incoming fax.

By default ,Windows XP Prof comes preloaded with 'FAX'. However, this software cannot  make the above-mentioned distinction. When there is normal (voice) call, the fax software recognizes the call as a incoming fax, and opens the Fax Console which says "receiving fax ... ", which is a problem.
Any suggestions?
Thanks.

I thought you can FAX as standard (no software needed) with Windows XP Professional?? We use it in our office at work & we didnt need to get any specific software (as far as i know!)

Might be wrong :)

Joleen: Bitware ver 3.3 does not work with XP.
Laura:  As mentioned in my original post, the default fax sofware that comes with XP, does not have ability to distinguish between a incoming fax and a normal call.
