RelayFax can dial your ISP for you in order to collect mail from and post mail to remote mail servers. The Dialup Settings dialog controls this feature.

Dialup Control

Enable RAS dialup/dialdown engine

Check this box to enable the dialup feature.

Before dialing make sure port [xx] is freed from inbound monitoring

By specifying the port on which you have a fax device listening for incoming faxes, RelayFax can suspend listening temporarily in order to use that port for dialup. This aids in avoiding hardware conflicts.

Dialup Attempts

Make this many attempts to establish a session

RelayFax will attempt to connect to the remote host this many times before giving up.

After dialing, wait this many seconds for a valid connection

This value determines how long RelayFax will wait for the remote host to answer and complete the RAS connection.

Dialup Profile

Logon name

The value specified here will be passed to the remote host during the authentication process.

Logon password

The value specified here will be passed to the remote host during the authentication process.

Use this RAS dialup profile

This drop-down list box allows you to select a session profile that has been previously defined through Windows Dialup Networking or Remote Access Services setup.

New profile

Click this button to create a new Dialup Networking or Remote Access Services profile.

Edit profile

Click this button to edit the currently selected Dialup Networking or Remote Access Services profile.

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 needed. Selecting this option will allow the session to remain active even after all mail has been transacted.

Keep sessions alive for at least XX minutes (0=immediate close)

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

Hang-up

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