ok. i am a newbie to Voice over Ip, video conferencing, faxing from my pc, etc. Sorry, just to warn everyone in advance, this is a multi-part question. I have one phone line in the house this is how it is running now:
PC modem------>all-in-one printer/fax
I have netmeeting, hotfax, a logitech webcam with integrated microphone (USB), and speakers
1) how can i place a call to an outside phone and communicate through my pc mic and speakers
2) will hotfax fax documents in this config
3) is IP telephony from a pc to phone line (or another pc) free or do i need a service provider.
4) Also, do i need some sort of virtual phone app to communicate over my pc to a phone line
