Hi all,
An American living in Hong Kong and with the language barrier here, forums like this are very helpful.

I have a small business with 4 phone lines and one fax line.

There are 17 paid holidays here so the offices are constantly closing. Is it possible to forward my fax line to receive faxes on my computer at home via broadband. I don't have dialup. Thanks

What does your phone company say? If you have call forwarding option, couldn't you simply enable the call forwarding to a home fax machine?

Yes I do have call forwarding but it would be great to check faxes on my computer if I'm travelling when theoffice is closed. I now have to bring people in to check the fax since we're working with Europe and N America which don't share the same holiday times.

Do you get faxes in your office using your computer?

If so there are several remote access programs which you use to connect to your office computer and access its programs such as PC Anywhere or Go To My PC.

There is an internet faxing service my buniess partner uses. I have never used it but he seems happy with it. The service has free inbound faxes and only 5 per page outbound.

Yup...coupling a forwarding of the fax number to a internet fax service should solve this problem for you. I believe efax supports hong kong numbers .
