Accessing Help Information ========================== You can locate additional help for questions you may have regarding your fax in the Online Help file provided with the driver. In the fax properties dialog box, you can click [Help] to display additional information about every feature and option in the fax driver. Cautions, Limitations and Restrictions ====================================== 1. Custom paper sizes are not available for sending a fax. 2. Do not specify more than 1 for the Copies option in the application since the fax may be sent more than once in some applications when the Copies option is specified in the application. 3. Specify a NetWare Server name or NDS tree name up to 15 characters. 4. For Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003/Vista/Server2008 when installing with Add Printer from the Printer Folder, the Cannot find Digital Signature message may appear. If this message appears, continue with the installation. The fax driver will install correctly. 5. When using Terminal Server for Windows 2000, or sharing Windows XP/Server 2003/Vista/Server 2008 by multiple users, it is not available to use the Job Accounting feature or set up printer configuration automatically. 6. For Windows XP/Server 2003/Vista, it is necessary to use TCP/IP as a network protocol in order to set up the printer configuration automatically when using a Remote Desktop environment, or when Windows is shared by multiple users. 7. When using the Job Accounting feature under the NetWare environment, it is not available to verify the ID and password even if the Confirm ID/Password when Sending Fax check box is selected in the ID/Password Settings dialog box. Thus, you cannot send a fax if the specified ID and password are invalid. 8. For the GP300-405, only System Version 2.0 (or later) is supported by the fax driver version 1.2 (or later). 9. If double quotation marks or CSV separators are included in any of the items (Such as name and fax numbers) stored in a CSV file, the addresses stored in the file may not be imported to the address book correctly. 10.If you have upgraded your operating system from Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003 to Windows Vista, you will no longer be able to access the address book. If this is the case, perform the following procedure. 1. Copy the address book files (gpfax.adr and gpfax.idx) from the system folder (the default system folder is "C:\Windows") to another folder (e.g. "My Documents"). This step can be carried out before or after you upgrade the system. 2. After you have upgraded the system, reinstall the fax driver in the new system, open the [Edit Address Book] sheet, click the [Specify a folder] button, and choose the folder you copied the address book files to in step 1 (e.g. "My Documents") as the address book folder. 3. Click the [Yes] button in the following dialog box. 11.If double quotation marks are included in any of the items (Such as names and fax numbers) stored in an ABK file (*.abk), the addresses stored in the file may not be imported to the address book correctly. 12.When an "@" character is used in the name of the printer, the printer will become unrecognizable by the operating system because of an invalid printer name thus disabling printing, operation and setup. 13.When you log on to an Administrator account that is different from the one used to install the software, you will not be able to access the driver properties with Administrator privileges. To access the driver properties, select [Run as Administrator]. 14.In certain applications, thickness of a line can be set to a value smaller than 1pt but the actual thickness in the printout may be equivalent to that of an 1pt line. 15.For Windows Server 2008 installed with Server Core option, the following limitations exist on using the fax driver. -You cannot install the driver with the installer. Use the installation options of Windows. -Some fax options are not available under local environment or Windows Remote Desktop environment. <END OF README.TXT>Download Driver Pack
