Fax on VoIP specially all the migration from analog to digital to analog is little less reliable. We have done special setup to improve the reliability. By dialing special prefix 999, we have the fax call differently and make sure calls are routed only to carrier who can support fax over VoIP. You can configure the device to automatically append 999 to the 11 digit phone number you want to dial for fax.

How to automatically append 999

what you would do is add the prefix digits enclosed in < and > characters, to the digit map entries of the ITSP Profile A/B/C/D settings.

Click on Service Providers -> ITSP Profile A -> General

Replace DigitMap from (1xxxxxxxxxx|[2-9]xxxxxxxxx|011xx.|xx.|(Mipd)|@@.) To (<999>1xxxxxxxxxx|<999>[2-9]xxxxxxxxx|<999>011xx.|xx.|(Mipd)|[^*#]@@.)
