|                       PRODUCT UPGRADE ANNOUNCEMENT
|
| From C.S. Smeton
|
| The new  send/receive FAX program from Joppa Software Development, titled:
| "STraight FAX!", will work with Class 2 compliant  send/receive FAX modems
| and SendFAX modems (in send only mode).
|
| We will  be premiering  this product  at the  TAF show in Toronto on April
| 4-5, 1992. Also, we have been  tentatively scheduled  for an  Online GEnie
| conference on Wednesday, March 25, 1992 at 10:00 PM in the ST Roundtable.
|
| The FAX/modems  that we have tested so far are the new Supra 2400/9600 and
| the Zoom 2400/9600  FAX/modems.The  Supra  9600/9600  and  14400/14400 FAX
| modems should  also work when they are released. We will be posting a list
| of known modems that work with our software, as the list grows.
|
| The thing to check out  is  the  manufacturer  of  the  chip  set  and the
| revision of  the firmware,  while there  are only a few chip manufacturers
| actually  making  the  chips  and  firmware,  there  are   many  FAX/modem
| manufacturers that use these chip sets. The Zoom and Supra FAX/modems that
| we have tested use various chip sets and firmware available from Rockwell.
| Sierra chip  sets should  also work  with out  any problems.  Here is what
| anyone can do to see if a FAX/Modem is compatible with our software:
|
|   From a terminal program at 2400 baud...
|
|            Type:
|            AT+FMFR? (followed by a carriage return)
|            The response will indicate the chip manufacturer.
|
|            Type:
|            AT+FREV? (followed by a carriage return)
|            To determine the firmware revision.
|
|            Type:
|            AT+FMDL? (followed by a carriage return)
|            To determine the modem model
|
|            Type:
|            AT+FCLASS=? (followed by a carriage return)
|            to determine what protocol Classes the FAX/modem supports.
|
|   If the response is:       0,2       Then the modem supports Class 2
|                             0,1       Then the modem supports Class 1
|                             0,1,2     The modem supports Class 1 & 2
|
| Currently STraight FAX! does not support  Class 1,  but support  for these
| FAX/modems may be added if there is sufficient demand. Most new FAX/modems
| will support Class 2.
|
|          You can also type:
|          ATI4 (followed by a carriage return)
|          To determine the manufacturer.
|
| Also if the response to any of the above is ERROR, then the modem does not
| support the feature that is being checked.
|
| Anyone can  send the  terminal program  buffer capture  of the above typed
| commands to our GEnie  mail address  (JOPPA-SOFT) and  we will  attempt to
| determine if the modem is supported.
