FXO ports Sharing line POTS Line with Fax

I have a 26xx with 1 fxo port it is connected to a normal pots splitter, and the other end of the splitter goes to the fax machine when all this is plugged in we cant send or receive faxes. The fxo port is only used for dialout i think there is a command that tells the fxo port to not answer calls that would probably fix my problem any ideas on a command or another theory?

Re: FXO ports Sharing line POTS Line with Fax

try the following command under the FXO voice port config -

ring number X

where X is a the number of rings required before the port answers. If the Fax is set to auto answer, make the ring number a value longer than the time it takes for the fax machine to answer the call.
