This looks like Modem compatibility issue, can you enable T30 logging and
send the log to us. Please contact Fax MVP Russ Valentine
([email protected]), he should be able to guide you on this.

I don't have an answer, but I do have the same problem. Have you managed to
sort it yet?

The modem compatability posted above got me up and working. Although my
windows server detected and installed drivers for my USR5686 faxmodem
AND windows could communicate with the modem and dial out through it, I
still saw this error message. Updating to drivers from solved
my hiccup and we're faxing at will.
