Well it seems I may have been a little overly optimistic when I wrote this Blog entry. Although sending faxes was indeed working fine it seems receiving a fax was not so hot.. after more reading a tweaking I now can do both sending and receiving. It seems that in order to receive a fax properly you need to slow the modem down to 4800 baud (eeesh). So if you are only interested in sending faxes from you laptop you might want to ignore these settings and keep the nice 14.4 baud that you can send at.
Basically it boils down to needing to add to parameters to your faxing software.
the “capabilities” parameters passed to efax should look like:
your’s may vary.. the important number in that string is the second 1 which sets the baud to 4800
you will also need to add the parameter
+MS=32,0,4800,4800 to your modem init string. Again yours may vary the important part here is the 4800,4800 which forces the modem to only use 4800 baud.
Receiving is still not perfect but at least you get a lot more then just the top 8th of the first page.
hope this helps… again this is ONLY needed for receiving.

I just got turned on to a very cool site; drop.io. It offers fast, temporary, hassle free storage on the web.
Once you set up a “Drop”, which does not require any personal information or signing up, you can start uploading things to the drop. Access to the drop can be controlled by both user and admin passwords. The privileges of the user password can be set selectively from just view to full access.
It supports other cool features like the ability to receive faxes to the drop to leave voice mail on the drop to subscribe to the drop via RSS or e-mail alerts.
Great Site.. go check it out..
