Fax Software

Community Forums



When replacing a fax modem, I’d recommend a controller based fax modem, (external serial modems) (not USB external) , or a controller-less based modem. In some cases where you cannot use an external modem (don’t have a serial port, or would rather have an internal device), your 2nd choice should be a controller-less based internal modem.

Avoid softmodems if you can. Although softmodems do work with WinFax, they are the most problematic due to window drivers and they heavily depend on the computer’s CPU.

here is more info describing the different type of fax modems available:
