How to Fax Documents Using Windows XP

It would be awesome if we all had our own fax machine. We could fax our resume to that new employer to be reviewed right away. Or we may want to receive that fax from our landlord so we can move into that apartment tomorrow.

Having a fax machine in your home could save you time in completing such tasks as getting a new job. Now what if you can fax documents without having to cough up big bucks to purchase a fax machine.

If you have a computer with Windows XP, internet access, and a printer, you already have a fax machine. One of the optional components in your Windows XP software package is the Fax Services Component. This package allow you to send and receive faxes through your computer using regular dial-up internet access.

To use this Fax Service you will need 3.7 megabytes of free hard drive space, a dial-up modem and your Windows XP Install CD. Since the transmission is sent through your phone line, a cable modem will not work.

The first thing you must do to use the Fax Service is to install it on your PC. This service is not installed when Windows XP was first installed. Perform the following steps to install this software.

Insert your installation CD in your CD or DVD drive and the welcome to Microsoft Windows XP will open. If it doesn't open, open My Computer and double-click the CD or DVD drive. Click install Optional Windows Components.

A menu will open that lists all optional Windows XP components. Now click the box in front of Fax Services and then click next. Watch the installation status bar and once its installed click the finish button and exit. You will need to restart your PC to finish the process.

You can now configure the Fax Console by adding your contact information, the modem you will use, and where you want the system to save a copy of each fax. To open the application, click on Start, choose All Programs, Accessories, Communications, Fax, the Fax Console, and click next once it opens. You can now type in the Sender information.

The next step in setting up the Console is to enter your TSD or Transmitting Subscriber Identification data. This allow the recipient's computer to identify your computer as the sender of the Fax. The TSD contains your Fax number or your fax number and name.

You're getting closer to finishing the Console. The CSID is next to be added. Your CSID is your Called Subscriber Identification and it can be the same data that's in the TSD. When you receive a Fax, your CSID will appear on the sender's confirmation page.
