COM3 as default port for ActiveFax

June 8, 2008

Q:
In the properties of the fax/email, when it’s asking for modem, the default is always Next Available. How do I default this to COM3?

A:
If you are using the latest ActiveFax version 4.14, this would be possible when you write the data field text @F312 COM03@ to the Location or Comment field of the ActiveFax printer in the Windows Control Panel. Data fields written to the Location or Comment field are automatically used as default data fields by the ActiveFax printer. With the data field @F312 it is possible to set the default modem.

USB Modem

June 2, 2008

Q:
We have bought a Diamond SupraMax USB modem to use with ActiveFax. How do we install a USB modem when there is not a option for USB there is just COM Ports? Are we just stuck with a RS-232 connection?

A:
When you install the drivers for the USB modem, there is also a COM port assigned to the modem (normally COM3 or COM4). This COM port can then be used to access the modem.
