Manual is fine... Automatic is not

Manual is fine... Automatic is not

I run into this the other day. It took a few months of The OA stating that the fax was not working.

[Fax Problem "Manual is fine... Automatic is not"

On a HP3100, there is an option to check the line for dialtone before sending a fax. Equipment is a HP3100, 3Com NBX 4.2.7 and ATC 3c10117c. 3Com's internal dialtone is more of a broken tone so when I disabled the check for dialtone. You now can send faxes automatic and not only manual.]

I don't know what other fax machines have an option to check for dialtone before sending a fax.

RE: Manual is fine... Automatic is not

You have voice mail waiting on that extension, hence the broken dial tone.  Delete the voicemail either from a telephone or in NetSet, and all will be fine.

RE: Manual is fine... Automatic is not

I will check that and get back with you.
