FWIW, you might want to check out this thread

and this suggestion:

This problem may happen when the Windows Firewall blocks a WinFax file, Wfxping.exe. To fix the problem, add this file to the Windows Firewall Exceptions list.

To add the Wfxping.exe file

Log on as a user with administrative privileges.
From the Start menu, click Settings > Control Panel.
If you use the Classic View, double-click Windows Firewall. Otherwise, click Security Center and then, in the “Manage security settings for” section, click Windows Firewall.
On the Exceptions tab, click Add Program.
Click Browse.
Find the WinFax folder.
This is usually at C:Program FilesWinfax
Click Wfxping.exe.
The “Path:” box displays a path that ends in Wfxping.exe.
Click Open.
If the host and client are on the same network (subnet), click Change Scope > My network (subnet) only. Otherwise, skip to step 10.
Click OK > OK.
In the Programs and Services list, ensure that the box next to Wfxping.exe is checked.
Click OK, and close the Windows Control Panel.
Restart the computer.
