I live in Mexico and have dsl I can send faxes, but how do I receive them? The phone line I use is my land line that is connected to my modem, but if I send a fax I have to connect to my printer. My phone number is a mexican telephone number. Do I use this number to recieve faxes?
If you have a fax machine, you can receive faxes by connecting it to the same phone line... you'll need a DSL filter inline with the fax machine. If you're using a fax modem inside your computer, then the same thing applies.... you need a DSL filter inline with the modem. You do not need an online fax service... all you need is a dial-up fax / modem and fax software. If you're using Vista Home Premium, you'll have to purchase separate fax software, but Business and Ultimate will have MS Fax built in.
