USR Couriers. Before I go and get yet another brand I am very interested
in knowing if there is one available that does work.
Both the Couriers and the new Zyxel seems to have serious problems with
HylaFAX. I can get both of them to work seemingly fine but after a few
sends/receives various problems always appear, most of them are known as
