sbs fax issues

OK...to start we have 2 fax modems (one for receiving and one for sending). We are having issues receiving faxes. It is a very intermittent problem. We will get a lot of partials then it will get disconnected. I have already tried to turn the one only for sending into both sending and receiving and still getting errors.

The most common errors (in the activity log file) are:
"telephone line quality is poor, and the fax cannot be received correctly"
"unknown fatal error"
"remote fax machine did not respond in time, and the call was terminated"  *(Mostly this one)*
"The incoming call cannot be answered as a fax call"

The most common errors (in the incoming fax log) are:
"Received DCN unexpectedly"
"Failed to receive expected response"
"Failed to receive expected command - aborting"

Maybe about 50% success rate in transferring (Lower when they are multi-page faxes).
Also, receiving errors from many different numbers as well.

If you need any more information please let me know.

Hi

Have you thought about receiving your faxes through an online service?

Not really in a position to ask, I work for a company that supports their stuff (we just need to make it work)
