    It never turns on, even though it is checked. When I exit the maintenance and go back in, it is off. There is a check for auto receive and the number rings is 2, changed from 4 at default. It remains 2 but auto answer does not.

    It will not send either even thought in test the com ports it finds the modem on com6 ok.

    Dear Administrator,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I have added the winfax components you specified in Zone Alarm on both machines.

    As to the instructions on the Symantec link you added, I would like to know if by following these steps I am not jeopardizing the security of my PCs and network etc. It seems that I would be removing important defenses included in the XP SP2. Is that something to worry about?

    Also, as I am running Zone Alarm my XP firewall cannot be used. What should I do with respect to steps no. 1-3 in the link?

    Thanks again for your kind assistance.

    Ok, I gave that a shot and, I forgot to mention, these computers had IE7 on them. They don’t anymore, since on looking around, I can see that has become a problem. Ok, so now I can enter the server’s ip address, but it still says it cannot connect to the server. None of the computers are running Norton, they all have the XP firewall running, and have the winfax program set in as an ‘always allow’ exception.

    Thanks, John, but, alas, it did not work. Unfortunately, VOIP is the only option I have available for now.

    Thanks again.

    sometimes uninstalling programs will remove critical system files (bad uninstalls) . Its happened to me when you accidently say “Yes” to delete a file that the program says isn’t used by any other program.

    not sure if you tried running wtnsetup.exe again, as I recommended in a previous post.

    the steps listed for WinFax PRO 10 and Windows XP SP2 fax sharing should work fine with TalkWorks PRO 3.0. TalkWorks PRO 3 is an updated version of WinFax PRO 9.03.
    In addition to following the steps in the technical document, Make sure you have wfxctl32.exe unblocked in any firewall, and worm protection in Norton Anti-Virus.

    did you try install WinFax PRO? running compatibility mode? What are the problems you are experiencing.

    10.0 cannot update to 10.04
    click the support link at the top of the forum web page for information on upgrading to 10.04 from version 10.03

    1. I can choose either a Windows 98SE or an XP SP2 computer to function as the host computer. Since the XP box is several years newer, I would prefer to use it unless this forum’s experience is that Windows 98SE would be a more stable and reliable host. Keeping in mind that whichever computer I choose will serve as host to XP SP2 workstations, which platform would members of this forum recommend that I use?

    I would recommend the Windows XP SP2 machine.

    2. Should the host and client installations of WinFax communicate over our Microsoft Small Business 2003 network or as peer-to-peer?

    Fax sharing uses TCP/IP to communicate. So, as long as TCP/IP is configured properly and there is nothing blocking the hosts and clients from talking to each other, it will work.

    3. Can the installation of WinFax running on the host computer be configured so that no one other than I can delete faxes? (That way, if some are inadvertently deleted, I can only blame myself.)

    The clients will receive a copy of the faxes you receive from the host, but if they delete those faxes locally on the client machines, they will not be deleted on the host. So, yes, if you delete from the host they are gone (unless someone retreived a copy on a client before you deleted it.)

    4. Is there an issue with WinFax being able to automatically print out incoming faxes by using a printer on a Small Business 2003 network?

    Yes, I have heard of this problem using a network printer. Symantec at one point recommended that the printer be installed locally on the HOST PC, so they could be printed automatically. I believe the problem occurs over a long period of time after printing a large number of faxes, but I can’t confirm this however.

    I appreciate your responses. I would prefer implementing the new WinFax configuration with as few glitches as possible. That way, (hopefully) I won’t have to post numerous questions in the future asking why something isn’t working.

    no problem!

    rebuilding your logs using the rebuild utility should correct this.
    if your log is very large, this can also be a problem. This only correct the problem after you have a failed event that is stuck with the “lightning bolt” icon.
