Get a Magic Jack (don't laugh it's works and is cheap!) Now you don't
have to change the software etc, the IBM i still thinks it has a POTS
The other option is a Vonage account. It's more expensive but also more
robust. Larry and I both use Vonage with no real issues.

Subject: Can IBM i fax over internet
We use 5798-FAX to fax many of our purchase orders. That product
faxes a specified spool file with confirmation that it completed, but
requires a phone line (or extension).
Is there a way to fax spool files via the internet instead of over a
phone line? I don't see where 5798-FAX has this ability.
