Fax program

By datalynk ·
I am looking for a fax program for cable/dsl. I am not looking for one with a monthly fee I am looking to buy one for a single user. Are there any out there?
Thank you

The ONLY way to send and receive FAXes over cable or DSL is to go through a 3rd party FAX service.

Yahoo used to offer such a service. I don't know if they still offer it, or if it is still free.

The problem is that you need a phone number for the sending FAX machine to dial to.
With a cable or DSL connection, you do NOT have a direct phone connection.

Even if you were to use a VoIP service, you need an actual phone line connection to transmit and receive FAXes.
