    I have a 2006 Dell Dimension E310 that came with Windows XP OS and a Microsoft Fax Console.
    I use it to send things but I have difficulty receiving unless I am physically present and can click
    "ANSWER NOW" and even then, it sometimes requires multiple attempts by the sender.
    How can I set up Windows XP Fax Console to work with my external TAD?
    I would like it to work like my old Brother external fax did - listen for the fax tone when phone is answered by TAD and respond if it hears tone, otherwise ignore call and allow outgoing message to continue.
    The Automatic setting seems to be a setting for dedicated lines and mine is not dedicated.
    I do not see a setup option wherein the TAD can answer, then the Console listens.
    Any suggestions?
