Receiving faxes

Post by 2023150590 » Thu Dec 03, 2009 12:30 pm

I receive faxes in my computer. Is there a way, or will a way be developed to allow me to receive faxes sent to my Ooma phone number in my computer so I do not need to buy a fax machine for this purpose? Thanks. Arleen

You didn't say which Ooma device you have (Hub or Telo), but in general you can connect the main, line1 wired connection from either device to a fax modem. You will likely need to configure the fax software to be compatible and use the high bandwidth codec for successful faxing.
