Chapter 13. Printing and Faxing > Understanding Faxes

Understanding Faxes

Windows XP comes with several fax components that you can use to configure fax devices, send and receive faxes, and monitor fax activity. These components include the Fax Configuration Wizard, Send Fax Wizard, Fax Cover Page Editor, and Fax Console.

Before you can use a fax component, you need a fax device for sending and receiving faxes. The fax device can be directly attached to your computer, known as a local fax, or located on a network, known as a remote fax. Once Fax is installed, you can use the fax components to configure the fax device, send and receive faxes, manage incoming and outgoing faxes, and change fax device properties.
