Fore some reason or another i can't get the fax to work
under win98.
I installed both the programs in oldwin95 but i still can't
fax.
When i press extra (or option)in the main menu of exchange
the programs stops.

when i want to make a fax it takes a long time for the
fax-window to popup and when i want to send it nothing
happens.

Please help

Make sure your modem is set to com-port 4 ,
Because it's a bit faster at transferring data across a phone line then try again.

It is a plug n play modem i can't just change the com-port and even if i could
what good will that do, the speed isn't the problem not being able to fax is.

Its is a rockwell HCF-chipset modem and the program is the standard fax-program
from the old win95 (located on the win98-CD)
