Default How do I change COM port on Fax Modem Driver?

My old Fax Modem card burned out in a thunderstorm. So I bought a new generic Fax Modem Card, and installed it and the driver. (XP Device Manager says it is a PCI Soft Voice SoftRing Modem.)

It seems to be working fine as a fax modem, but I had also used my previous card as a phone dialer with a (very) old database application that is called askSam 2.0, which had worked very well.

However, if I look in Device Manager I see in Modem properties that the modem is connected to Port 5, whereas the askSam application only allows me to connect to ports 1 through 4. Is there any way I can get the software to make the modem connect to a port with a lower number than 5?

Device Manager
Double-click the listed modem
select the "Advanced" tab
click the "Advanced Port Settings" button
Under "Com Port Number" select the port you wish for the modem, then click OK.

If the modem refuses to accept the port you select, then that usually means that port (ie: irq and address) is not available (is not a free resource).
