Like some kind of fax modem emulator. I have broadband phone service through vonage I just need a way to fax stuff w/o a modem.

I quick search of google finds several email fax services. Of course you have to pay for the service.

Yeah I tried google. No need to be condescending. I don't want that. was wondering if there was an actual program, or something.

The only options I know of are to get someone else to send the fax on your behalf, or get a suitable modem. Either way, there's a good chance you'll have to spend some money.

Maybe Hylafax?

Edit: NVM... Still requires a modem.

Is scanning and emailing not an option?

The funny part about it is that I have a modem with linux drivers I just can't get it to work to save my life. It even has a nice .deb driver installer, but no go.

Most of the time I can get away with it. I dumped my xp partition, and installed it on a vm, so I'm 100% Ubuntu now. I thought if I could find away around my modem I wouldn't have to spend the rest of my life trying to figure it out.

<aside>I have a Linux version of Star Office sitting round somewhere. Couldn't get it to work, the installer (a .bin file) kept on bombing :( Never mind. Its close cousin Open Office will have to do. </aside>

My Linux philosophy: If you can't beat it, find away around it.
