Fax and Data into one modem

By TGM ·
I have a Win2K Professional system which I have configured to accept "incoming connections" from other machines via the attached modem. This work fine. I added fax sending anjd receiving support for Outlook 2000 using the Symantec Winfax Starter software. This works fine. The problem is that when I now dial into the machine with a data call it is answered by Winfax, recognised as not being a fax call and dropped. Does anyone know how to ensure that Winfax passes over non fax calls to the "Incoming Connections" RAS service? I have only one incoing line and one modem. I don't want to start putting in faxes switches etc It must be possible in software musn't it?

Hi there. I found this info on the Symantec site. Hope this will help.

If the URL does not work, just look for RAS in the Winfax Support section.

This all refers to Winfax basic rather than winfax starter edition. I know this does work with Winfax pro so I have placed an order for that and will review when it arrives
