[hylafax-users] correct Hylafax configuration with a phone switch?
I have a Hylafax system configured with an external telephone
fax/modem, connected to a dedicated phone line, and set up to
automatically print incoming faxes. All works fine.
I now need to move from a dedicated phone line to a shared phone line
that has an answering machine. I have a CS3500 switch, and have it
programmed to 'listen' to the incoming call when the answering machine
picks up (after three rings). If the cs3500 detects the CNG tones, it
switches the connection to the FAX line (which runs directly into the
modem). BTW, the modem is a USR Courier V Everything (yea, I know that
these modems have problems. I'll address this later).
My question is: what settings should I change on the modem config file
to allow processing of the fax? I am thinking that I should set
'number or rings' to 0, but not sure. Do I need to reconfigure anything
If the incoming call is a voice call, the cs3500 does not detect the CNG
tones, and the call is handled normally by the answering machine.
Thanks for your help
