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
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

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.
What kinf of modem you have and waht is the fax program you are using?
Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

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

Sorry, changed the modem it is a diamond 56k6 modem.
you have to go to control panel and setup a post office for it before you can use the fax.  it sucks i had the same problem.

A postoffice ? what kinda things most i do.
Do you mean the personal maps and so on or something different
do you have an inbox on your desktop?...you should click on it and follow the instructions for setting it up

It didn't work but i used a different program, called delrina fax or something.
this doesn't use the exchange so problem fixed.

thanks for the trouble
