I cannot add a new device (called main line) and not have it be a shared device. I seem to be going in circles following the instructions.
I cannot find out how to stop this forwarding on this second number & make the fax ring when I call the fax number line. HELP!!!
I can now get the second line to ring & answer fax, but the main line (number) also has the fax answering during a voice call.
Both are set to shared - only second number has "enable fax mode" Only one device is set up in personal devices. Any other config results in call forwarding even when it is not setup to forward anything anywhere.
I have a splitter on the telo phone jack - 1 to main lines in house, 1 to fax machine.
What is software & hardware setup to get each line to ring independently?

Do you have a telo handset? If so, do you want the fax machine to be on the main number & the voice calls to be on the 2nd number? Is your fax machine set on auto answer?
1) No personal devices. Assign a different ring pattern to the fax number so that your Fax can pick up (fax machines that recognize different ring patterns) and you'd know not to pick up since not voice call.
2) Assign your main Ooma device as a personal device and set your fax number to it. Any phones connected to the phone port will only ring when fax number is called. You'd have to have at least 1 partner device (Telo handset for Telo & Scout for Hub) to handle your voice calls.
