    I am doing some max faxing and I want to know which one’s I should refax that haven’t gone through. I am exporting the non sent one’s to an ascii file including the error code filed. Problem is I don’t know what they mean. Is there anywhere I can find the meaning of the error code field to see which fax numbers are worth faxing again?

    Thanks in advance.


    can you post an example of some of the error codes?


    When I do the export, I get values for a fax sent such as


    When I choose the export data fields from winfax pro, these values would be sitting in the Error Code field. I presume this is where the messages such as no carrier, line busy etc would be. I just don’t know what the value corresponds to. That’s what I’m looking for. What is 4? Does it mean Line busy etc.


    Here is a list of the error codes for WinFax

    There are several Phases in a normal fax transmission:

    Phase A – Establish call (Send and receive Station identifiers, the CSID numbers)

    Phase B – Pre-message procedure (determine fax capabilities, set baud rate, etc.)
    Phase C – Fax transmisstion
    Phase D – Post-message procedure (Message confirmation, End of Page, or multiple signals)

    Phase E – Call release(connection closed, send result codes (good or bad)

    Each of phase B, C, & D is repeated for each fax page sent.

    Call Placement & Termination
    0 : Normal and proper end of connection
    1 : Ring detect without successful handshake
    2 : Call aborted from +FK (terminate fax session)
    (Caller aborts fax)
    3 : No loop current
    4 : Phone Line Busy
    5 : No dial tone, or no modem response.
    (check that modem is on and connected to wall jack)
    8 : Modem error while setting up call
    (Modem problem or bad init string)

    Transmit Phase A (Codes 10-19)
    10: :Unspecified phase A error
    ( remote station did not answer the call)
    11: :No answer
    ( remote station did not answer the call)

    Transmit Phase B (Codes 20-29)
    20: :Unspecified phase B error
    21: :Remote cannot receive or send
    (out of paper, or disk space?)
    22: :Command received error in transmit phase B
    23: :Invalid command received

    24: :Response received error
    25: :DCS (Digital Command Signal) sent 3x without response
    26: :DTC received 3x and not recognized
    27: :Failure to train
    (Can not agree of transmit speeds, etc.)
    28: :Invalid response received

    Transmit Phase C (Codes 40-49)
    40: :Unspecified phase C error
    (User abort?)
    43: :DTE to DCE data underflow
    (Processor may be over loaded, UART buffer error)

    Transmit Phase D (Codes 50-69)
    50: :Unspecified phase D error
    51: :Response received error
    52: :No response to MPS (Multi-Page Signal)
    53: :Invalid response to MPS
    54: :No response to EOP (End of Page) repeated 3x
    55: :Invalid response to EOP

    56: :No response to EOM (End of message)
    57: :Invalid response to EOM
    58: :Protocol error

    Receive Phase B (Codes 70-89)
    70: :Modem error setting modem data rate
    71: :invalid Response received
    72: :Command received error
    73: :Timed out. Page not received
    74: :timed out after End of Message received

    Receieve Phase C (Codes 90-99)
    90: :Unable to write to disk

    Receive Phase D (Codes 100-119)
    100: :invalid Response received
    102: :invalid Response received
    103: :Protocol error

    Codes 120-255 are reserved codes.


    Thanks, I looked for these everywhere and could not find them. Exactly what I am looking for 🙂


    You’re welcome!
