I have been successfully using the FAX wizard to send INTERNATIONAL faxes for more than a year. I wanted to send a fax today and it went into the normal dialing the number and then after about a minute it gave the error message to the effect "FAX failed" and then tries to redial and send again. I tried several times to do this but to no avail. I dialed the international fax number myself and got the fax tone just to make sure the fax machine was turned on and it was. I picked up the telephone receiver after the wizard dialed the number and I could hear the fax tone from the machine. It appears that my end is just NOT answering or responding to the tone???
I uninstalled and re-installed the fax service but still cannot send an international fax. I am in the Philippines and am trying to call a fax number in the USA. I always call this same number. I have done this about 20 times successfully in the past and nothing "obvious" has changed on my system. I am able to send a fax to a local number here without any problems so I am at a loss as to why the international fax fails. My best guess is that my end is not detecting the fax signal on an international call but yet it can when I make a local fax connection. Any ideas are greatly appreciated!
