Modem Settings - Actions

 

The default settings shown in this screenshot are recommended.  The 'Wait for Remote to Answer' can be increased if you find that a particular fax machine you are calling takes a very long time to answer, for example perhaps your correspondent has their fax machine set to answer after 10 rings, this may take more than 60 seconds so increase it to 90 seconds or whatever is needed.  If this amount of time expires after the modem dials the number, the modem will hang up and report 'no answer'.

 

Modem Reset commands are typically ATZ or AT&F, the default is ATZ but as shown, it is recommended to use AT&F for most Multitech modems.

 

Transmission logs are useful to snappy fax tech support for diagnosing connection problems.
