Configuration

Follow these steps to successfully send a fax using this PDFFaxJob class:

1. Verify

a. The fax modem is installed on the local machine according to manufacturer’s instructions.

b. If the modem is an external modem, that it is powered on, plugged in to the phone line, and ready to dial a recipient.

2. Identify the name of the communication port on which the modem is installed.

3. Pass the name of the communication port into the constructor that takes a string if the name of the communication port is not “COM1”.

NOTE: If the specified port is not recognized as a serial port -- for example, a USB port is specified -- PDFFaxJob might not be able to communicate with the modem.
