Distinctive ring is really for receiving faxes, it allows you to have a different phone number assigned to you but still only having one physical phone line connected to your home/business. WinFax can be configured to only answer the phone with a specific ring pattern.

If you want to receive faxes with one phone line and send faxes with another, you can configure two different fax modems in your PC and have one set to send using a specific fax modem (which is connected to a specific fax line)

The other option is to use a service like Concord Fax Mailbox, which offers you a 1-800 toll free number to receive faxes. You can retreive your faxes directly from WinFax or any touch-tone phone. Contact Concord Fax for details on this service. http://www.concordfax.com
