No, not in the way I believe your talking about. Traditional (legacy) fax machines or fax modems require an analog phone line. If you can't send the fax from your PC with a standard DSL or cable connection, then you won't be able to do it with the Pearl.

Remember, please try searching first!

Need a screenshot? ... Like JavaLoader?
Try using BBscreen .....Use JL_Cmder!
or BBScreenShooter!

If you have an efax account, you can send it via the internet through efax using the pearl as your internet connection.
