two network cards or a modem connection installed on this machine?
Wow. Quick feedback here. Thanks for the suggestions. There was a dial-up
adapter configured for the PC. I've now taken off both the TCP/IP settings
for the dial-up adapter and the adapter itself, rebooted, and still no joy
:( I also tried taking out the entry for my gateway router (which had a
corresponding entry in the Windows boxes routing table) and that didn't
improve things either (both machines are on the same subnet).
I do get lots of connect buttons. The /var/spool/hylafax/etc/hosts.hfaxd
(I'll tighten it up a little once I've got everything else working).
I'm assuming that this file replaces the 'hosts' file in earlier versions -
since I do get connected eventually via WHFC and immediately via telnet
from the client.
The routing table on my PC looks like:
