Stop Fax From Triggering Calls

I have one PSTN line connecting a) to a fax machine b) to an FXO port and DSL port of a 2801 router. FAX and phone use different numbers.

The router is running ccme. I have connection-plar opx command on the FXO port to direct the calls to a group of ip phones. The problem is that the ip phone rings when a fax comes in. Is there a way to stop that?

Here another random bug post, rated as such.

Now for the issue, no you can't stop the phone from ringing, because you have a single line and the router has no way to know which number has been called.
