PostPosted: Wed Sep 03, 2003 4:02 pm    Post subject: virtual faxing Reply with quote Back to top

I was wondering if it's possible to send a virtual fax from my PC using Vonage. I don't have a fax machine and I don't send enough faxes to want to buy one. I used to be able to simply click PRINT on my PC (win2000) from my document and my fax wizard would take me through the steps to send a fax off my PC. I've tried it with my Vonage connection and the message I'm getting is UNABLE TO CONNECT. Any ideas? Anyone else had this problem and been able to fix it?

Obviously you'll need a fax modem in your PC and then you'll need to connect that modem to the ATA. If you do not have the fax port activated on your box ($9.99/month) then you can still make outgoing faxes on your primary line. You may have some configuration issue with your modem that prevents you from making the call or simply the phone line is connected to the wrong port on the modem. Most modems will disable the plug marked phone to prevent picking up the phone when the modem is in use - if you plug the wall into that plug, you'll get dead air when picking up the modem.

I'm running a cable modem, with a router, which is how I access my Vonage service. I don't have a dial-up and win2000 has it's own fax program, so you aren't dependent on third-party dial-up modem software. The difficulty I have is that my fax software isn't connecting via the LAN to the phone to send the fax to somebody else's fax landline.

Unfortunately that won't work. You need to get a standard fax modem in your computer and connect it to the Vonage service via the analog phone cable. The fax service in Windows uses a modem and analog phone line and I don't believe supports any fax over the net service.

as i recall, the free EFAX service costs nothing unless and until you send faxes, at which point it's a very reasonable charge (something like 10 cents a page or some such.) you can fax directly from windows apps, since efax adds a menu bar (or whatever) option to do this.

Generally, when you're sending a fax from Windows, you're using a faxmodem, not a service over the Internet. The faxmodem connects to the outside network through the Vonage adapter device (also called the ATA).

The phone extension wire should plug into the "Wall" outlet/port/jack on the faxmodem.

If you have a second Vonage number just for faxing, then plug the wire into the second port (Line 2) on the adapter device.

If you have just one Vonage number for both voice and faxing, then arrange the wiring so that the phone and the faxmodem share the first port (Line 1) on the Vonage adapter device, just like when they shared the regular phone jack in the wall for your old phone service. Faxmodems and many telephones have extra jacks to make this easy.

You do have to use your faxing software to test and make sure your faxmodem gets a dial tone.

I wish. I just checked yesterday because it was EFAX or a Vonage fax line. To send faxes, EFAX wants $12.95 activation, $12.95 a month AND 10 cents a page from the very first fax sent, although if a page takes more than a minute, the then the charge is one page fee per minute. (I just looked at something else: 16 cents a page to Canada).

Vonage: $9.99 activation, $9.99 a month, 250 minutes a month to US and Canada included.

That, plus the fact that Vonage is a real line, with all the flexibility that entails, makes it the clear winner in my book.

For smaller volume virtual faxing, you may wish to consider www.send2fax.com

they have several plans. one is $1 a month plus 15 cents usage in or out. (With this plan, you prepay $20 into your account and they just debit your credit card when your balance hits $5) Another plan is $7.95 a month and includes 100 pages total, in or out. The final plan is $10.95 and includes 200 or 250 in/out. Both those are 10 a page for overages. I signed up for an account last month to test it out for personal use.

I've got a Vonage fax line for my personal use and also an efax account with my business which we use for all incoming faxes to my office (we run 200 pages incoming a month easy). my Vonage hasn't been as stable since I switched from the cisco to the moto ata. To vonage's credit, they've tried to reach me a few times to continue troubleshooting and I've just been out or too busy to deal with it. I'm still sitting the fence on whether I want to keep my decidated fax line. I might just go to the Send2Fax for my incoming faxes (it's an 800 number too which is nice) and send my outgoing through my main line on Vonage. Without distinctive ring, you can't hook your fax up to your main line for autodetect, so you have to either go virtual for incoming or keep the second Vonage line.

I am using Symantec WinFax to fax from Outlook.

Using Voice and Fax both from ATA line 1 (I didn't buy a dedicated fax line) with a splitter to the 56k modem on the PC and phone

here's the issue. Everything proceeds fine intially

THe software waits for dialtone, dials, offers and then begins to send. However, all faxes come back undeliverable....what's up, any suggestions?

Try using the dialing prefix *99. From what I understand this prepares the Vonage line for a fax/modem call.
