Is it a fax modem. If it is have you tried to do a diagnostic test are you sure that your modem is correctly installed.  you can see that by going into your system into your control pannel if you can see a yellow exclamation point or doing a test into control pannel into you modem higlight your modem port and make sure that it is the good one go to diagnostic and more info will test your modem. you can try the phone dialer and test it.

You probably have run in to the problem that about 80% fall into when trying to use Win95 Fax.  It is probably that the Exchange engine is not running.

Try this:
First, load the exchange software (double click on the icon label InBox).  After that is loaded, then try to send or receive a fax.

I betcha it will work.
