Trendnet TFM 561U modem


I would like to get this setup so I can fax documents.

Trendnet TFM 561U modem

I have not been able to find any Linux drivers for it.

It may not need drivers i.e. it already has kernel support.

Plug the device into the computer and look at the output of the dmesg command. I would guess it will be /dev/ttyACM0 and it works like a serial device.
