I know that Microsoft states that the Windows 2000 fax service doesn't support "distinctive ring" (two or more #'s for the same phone line) but I found an article that stated that it is possible to tell your modem to only respond to the first phone number.  I followed the directions but they didin't work because my modem doesn't recoginize the different rings as ring1, ring2, etc but rather as a DRON/DROF number.  Does anybody have any ideas on how to get my modem to only respond to the first number and to not answer the 2nd number?  Let me know if you need more information or whatever, thanks.

the comments here might help you fix your problem although it is for XP (which supposedly has the same problem).

guidway,
  I had already been to your first link and failed to find a working solution and your second link is just to fax programs.  I don't want to use another fax program if I can avoid it, I really like the Win2000 fax program.  I was just looking for a program or a way to have my modem ignore the "distinctive ring" number and only answer the first number.

I don't believe it is possible without another program to manage it for you. Good luck though in your search. :0)
