Okay, I have a simple question. I need a good solution to send a fax with the use of CAPI through an ISDN modem to somewhere else. This is going to replace an existing solution where faxes are sent through a normal modem and TAPI.

Now, if this was a simple question, I would have solved it myself already. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about ISDN (yet, but am learning) and nothing about CAPI. It might just be that this is even a wrong solution. So at the moment I'm doing some severe studying, am evaluating a component called TCapiCtrlfrom an unknown author and am searching for a good solution.

This thing, however has to be finished yesterday. (You know, deadlines always are a real pain...) But hey, so many things have to be done yesterday that this just wasn't a priority. It is a priority now, however. So the 500 points and A-Grade are for those who provide a good, quick solution. Useful suggestions will be useful but they won't be rewarded if someone provides a working solution. I am working on this issue myself too so there's a time-limit too. If I find it myself, too bad. :-)

So, keywords: Fax, ISDN, CAPI, Delphi 5.

Preferable solutions that include source. Free if possible, but nothing without source code.

I've seen the Torry's pages and saw "ISDN-Objects v.1.4" as the only usable option. But it's a commercial product and the source is not available. While commercial components are okay, they must include full source code before we even consider purchasing them. But ISDN Objects doesn't seem to include full sourcecode so it's not an option.

The Wagner's CAPI solution is an ActiveX control. However, the site has the following note: "I'm not doing any further development on the OCX's, as I don't have ISDN any longer. This means the current OCXs are "final" versions, even though they might need some further improvement..."
Thus, no further supfor the control plus the fact that it's an ActiveX component and not a simple Delphi component just make this a non-workable solution too...

Sorry, but I've checked them out before already. I've Googled and visited Torry, DSP and a few other sites already before going here to ExEx...

Well, after some communications with the creators of ISDN Objects, I've decided that they do have a workable solution. It took a bit of time but okay... It works reasonable well. Found a few other links too. A complete list:

I still have to fix another issue, though with the T.30 protocol and my current ISDN modem, but this question has been answered. :)
