Hi,

Public Sub SendFax()
  Dim FaxServer As Object
  Dim FaxDoc As Object
 
  Set FaxServer = CreateObject("Faxserver.FaxServer")
 
  'Create FaxServer object...
  '<---This line does not produces an error.
  If (FaxServer.Connect("Fax")) Then
    MsgBox "Failed to connect"
  End If
 
  'Create document
  Dim FaxFile As String
  FaxFile = "C:\Work\Projects\Serck Controls\Vb\FaxSender\Message.txt"
  Set FaxDoc = FaxServer.CreateDocument(FaxFile)
 
  FaxDoc.FaxNumber = "0,49543543"
  FaxDoc.RecipientName = "John Doe"
  Dim iReturn As Integer
  iReturn = FaxDoc.Send                     '<--- Failed to Send
