    In setting up winfaxpro 10.04 (10.02, lu to 10.03 plus 10.04) I have configured the host with its ip address. The host is found and everything seems to be ok. However, when I startup the message manager I get the following error:

    WinFax pro is unable to connect to the WinFax Pro host station calle Make sure an account has been created for you on the host station (using the same name/password used to login on your client station).

    I have followed the instructions to the letter and created a special user on host and workstation with administrator’s rights. I do not login with this user as the instructions say that that is not necessary. Besides all stations have the same administrator and password; so actually I question whether it is necessary to create that special user.

    Still I cannot connect. Is it a security issue that needs special attention? I have a p2p network, all xp sp2.


    If your running a small network, a few PCs , then I would recommend using Static IP addresses on each machine and configure your router to use the 192.168.0.x sub-net. Example is Router,, Host Machine, Client Machine(s),, etc.

    Also, you should be able to share files/ping each machine using computer name and IP address from the host and client(s) using TCP/IP protocol.
