    I have changed my telephone arrangements to one line with distinctive ring tones. How do I set Winfax up to recognize one of the distinctive ring tones as the fax number and not answer the other distinctive rings?



    Microsoft removed distinctive ring support from Windows 2000 & XP! The Unimodem5 driver included with these versions of Windows does not support distinctive ring. Application software using TAPI (WinFax PRO) does not receive any distinctive ring information provided by your modem.

    Partial Distinctive Ring Support is possible if you want the modem to answer only on a particular distinctive ring by modifying the registry or the modem’s .inf file. This is accomplished by changing the appropriate responses in the registry. This can be done by editing the registry with regedit.exe, or by editing the modem .inf file and re-installing the modem, which will modify the registry entries.
