Incoming FAXes are automatic on a hub.

I have a hub. If incoming faxes are automatic, but what about setting it up for outgoing?

Dial *99 pause before you dial the destination phone number.
If you are dialing manually the pause is to wait for the dial tone to return.

Had the same problem until I used the following configuration:

Set up a second line with a non-default ring pattern (s-s-l-l)
Routed my Ooma telo to my fax machine and then my telephone. (Tried using a splitter, as recommended, but had no success)
Set Ooma Voicemail to 9 rings (54 seconds)

On my Fax Machine (Cannon MX870) I did the following:
Turned off ECM
Set Ring pattern to DRPD
Set DRPD Fax ring pattern to other ring pattern

Those settings worked for me to receive a fax.

Now to just configure the Ooma to only forward my original number and not it and the fax number, everything would be golden.

Hi wpwood3,

I'm not very technical so I just get a free online fax: http://www.k7.net/index.htm

The only challenge for this free online fax and voicemail service is:

1. It's a 206 area code (but now a day may not be an issue especially you use it sparingly)
2. You need to keep the # active within 30 days or account will go inactivate and you will have to get a new #. For me, I just set a reminder to call the # once every months and the vm kicked in and I'm done.

My question for everyone... how do you type "pause" after *99 on HP 6500 wireless computer fax screen?

I have the same HP6500 E709N machine. I connected it as follows

Modem -> Router -> OOma Telo

Ooma phone port -> Splitter : to DECT phone and HP 6500

fax enabled in setup.ooma.com

I don't need the *99 for outbound fax. Incoming fax is not automatic. I have to press the 'Fax start' button on the 6500 for it to receive it.

This free K7 fax and VM service works wonderfully. Faxes and VMs come directly to your email inbox. Thanks for the info.
