View Full Version : WinXP and Faxability



15-02-2002, 10:03 AM
After finaly upgrading to Winfax 10.02 to solve various fax issues in XP I had to realize, that Microsoft removed the 'Distinctive Ring Feature' from the new OS.
Result: No Faxability!
Are there any products available, which would solve this issue?

I too, was very frustrated to find that Distictive Ring Capabilities were removed from Windows 2000 and XP.

I don't think there is a way to add distictive ring support to your computer. (I could be wrong). But you could buy a ring decoder that would route the signal to either the computer for fax, or the phone. Here is an example of one:
