Setting Up a Fax

If your computer has a fax modem installed, you can send and receive faxes through your computer. The Fax Configuration Wizard helps you set up the Fax Service. You need to enter some personal information for the fax cover page, a phone number, and some option for the way you want to send and receive faxes. As part of the setup, you also need to specify the use of a Transmitting Station Identifier (TSID), which is an identification sent along with a fax to identify the source, and a Called Subscriber Identifier (CSID), which is an identification sent back to the sending fax device to confirm the identity of the source. Fax is not installed by default during Windows Setup, so you need to install it. If it is not installed, the Fax Configuration Wizard asks you to install it.
