Yesterday I installed a Zoltrix 56k PCI Plug & Play Fax/Modem. I have no problems with my internet
connection, so my modem is working properly. But when I try to fax something I get no connection.
When I tried to run the fax software that came with it. it said that it could not initialize my modem.
Any help would be appreciated.

The modem is Ok but you fax software was not configed. You should search for Modem Setup or something like that in the software menus/user manual and config there the software.

After I asked the question, I printed out the manual from Zoltrix. I had to change the
initialization string and com port and that did the trick. Thanks for your answer.

I got a similar problem with the Microsoft FAX program: the modem
works, Internet connection also, FAX sending also, but not FAX receiving. I installed a Winphone software and anything works. If someone knows why Microsoft FAX software does not receive?
