GlobalFax for Power Macs

Send Article to a Friend
Director of Technical Services, Baka Industries Inc.

Earlier this month, Global Village Communication released version 2.08b of its GlobalFax software and TelePort software for serial TelePort modem models. This update enables Power Macintosh users to send and receive faxes using a Global Village serial modem. The fix actually incorporates two parts. The first part is available as part of Apple's System Update 3.0, and is included with GlobalFax 2.08b. The second is built into the new TelePort control panel.

You can download the software from the Global Village support BBS (a FirstClass system) at 415/390-8334, and on the Internet at:

ftp://ftp.globalvillag.com/pub/software/
http://info.globalvillag.com/welcome.html

This update is for Global Village's TelePort/Bronze II, TelePort/Silver, TelePort/Gold, and TelePort/Mercury modems. It will not work with the TelePort/Bronze, TelePort A300 (the original ADB modem), or TelePort FullFax modems. Owners of these modems should not attempt to install this software update, as the installer will remove the ADB-specific TelePort software, rendering the modem unusable. (This can of course be corrected if the appropriate software is reinstalled.)

PowerPort software is also at version 2.08b, and it is for the new PowerPort/Mercury for the PowerBook Duo. Other than Duo and Power Macintosh users, previous owners of Global Village's modems need not upgrade their software to 2.08b. (PowerPort/Mercury for Duo owners will receive the correct version with the modem, in any case.)

Global Village modem owners with current TelePort Serial and PowerPort software can use the 2.1 version of GlobalFax software that ships with the company's OneWorld fax servers. This allows users to take advantage of a central OneWorld fax server while at the office or while linked via AppleTalk Remote Access, while enabling these users to utilize their own directly connected modems at other times. Among other features, GlobalFax 2.1 provides grayscale fax transmission, intelligent requeueing of unsent or incomplete faxes, faster processing, and better handling of memo text on cover sheets. Global Village plans to release GlobalFax 2.1 for general use with its stand-alone serial TelePort and PowerPort modems, but has not yet announced an availability date. (There are no plans to update the GlobalFax software for early ADB TelePort models.)
