I recently unistalled my Canon MultiPass fax/printer/copier and installed
"Fax." I have checked to make sure that my internal analog modem was on the
XP compatible list. I have the fax configured to use the analog modem. When
a fax is incoming my phone just rings and rings. When I try to send a fax,
it just sits in the outgoing file. If I restart my computer, the fax machine
will work briefly. I am receiving an error message that states "the port the
modem is using is in use by another application . . ." My fax is using com3.
I connect to the internet via a cable modem. From what I can tell the cable
modem uses com1. Although neither device shows a conflict through Device
Manager, I read somewhere that com1 and com3 use the same port and com2 and
com4 use the same port thus causing the conflict.

Is there a way to solve my problem so I can send and receive faxes using Fax
Console?

Thanks,
Sheryl

Windows XP Fax is designed to work with an analog fax modem installed in a
PCI slot on your PC. You appear to be talking about a third party
"all-in-one" device for which XP Fax was not designed. You'll need to
contact Canon, I suspect.

Sorry for the confusion. I no longer am using the Canon device (both the
hardware and the software have been removed). I have installed a Brother
laser printer. I am attempting to send and receive faxes directly from my
computer using XP Fax.

As the information comes trickling in... perhaps you could include the
analog fax modem you are now using and whether it appear on the Windows XP
HCL list.

The modem is a GTW V.92 modem, and yes it is listed on the HCL list.

Then we would need to set up transmission and PSS logging to investigate
further, which will require extensive reg hacks. I can send instructions if
you want.
