I have windows XP andI can’t get it to receive a fax


I have windows XP; I can’t get it to receive a fax. It will I receive if I manually click “receive fax” from the fax program. But will not pick it up automatic. It sends ok; I would like it to run automatic when I switch the computer on too. Is all this possible?
