TSID and CSID


K

Kath

I have a 56K modem that I want to use to fax from my computer - I am running
Windows XP. I don't know that those ID's are suppose to be. Also, the
internal modem that I have has two jacks, one that says wall and one that
says phone, which one do I connect the phone line too and can I use a duplex
jack so I can have my internet modem and my fax modem both connected?

Thanks

This article explains what TSID and CSID are in relation to Fax.

It's generally a lot less of a hassle to use the FAX modem for data as well
as FAX. I really doubt that you will be able to use both modems at the same
time.
(Without third party software intended for commercial use, that is)
The internal modem plug marked wall normally gets connected to the analog
phone line wall plug. The one marked phone is normally connected to a phone.
The modem may have a relay that disconnects the phone" when it is in use.
Some modems have the jacks paralled, and do not disconnect the "phone".

Read the article that Chuck cited as well as my response to your earlier
thread.

TSID and CSID are *your* telephone number (and optionally, your name).
TSID identifies you to a person you send a fax to and CSID identifies
you to someone sending you a fax. I have a vague recollection that the
TSID is required by the FCC, but I'm not at all certain of that.

If you have *DSL* modem (you initially said that you had "high speed"
internet) then you *can* use both your DSL modem and your fax modem at
the same time. If you have dial-up service Internet service, then you
can't (unless you have two separate phone lines).
