Use the options on this pane if you need to configure your client to dial in to the Internet in order to pass a fax to the RelayFax server for faxing. If your computer resides on a network or you have some other direct connection to the Internet such as DSL, then this feature will not be necessary.

Click this checkbox to enable/disable the dialup feature.

Connection Persistence

Once established, RelayFax will not close the RAS session

By default, RelayFax will shut down a created connection immediately after all mail transactions have been completed and the session is no longer in use. Selecting this option will allow the session to remain active even after all mail has been sent.

Keep sessions alive for at least XX minutes

If enabled, this option will allow a RelayFax created RAS session to survive for at least the number of minutes specified. Placing a zero in this entry will cause the connection to be immediately closed after all transactions have been completed.

Hangup

This button will break the connection to the ISP. This button is active only if RelayFax has initiated the dialup session.
