    Here's the scenario. Running Server 2003 R2 Service Pack 1. , Microsoft Fax
    Service. Faxing starts, after a number of rings - the receiving device "picks
    up", the faxing starts, in middle of page one (of two or three) the following
    error is displayed: The remote fax machine did not respond in time, and the
    call was terminated. After an interval the process is restarted and the
    error is repeated. Approximately 1 in 25 faxes completes successfully.

    So far I've tried the following steps - to no avail. Lowered the baud rate
    to 9600, 14400, etc., disabled compression. I am at wit's end. Any help is
    appreciated.

    Mel - I'm also experiencing this problem. Were you able to arrive at a
    solution? I'm thinking it may have been the result of a windows update.
