Fax service in SBS 2003, error 32092, can't receive fax

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Antonio Barra, Dec 9, 2004.

  1. I am trying to install and configure the fax service in a SBS 2003 system. I
    have an external modem, connected to a serial port. The modem sends faxes ok,
    but can't receive them.
    The modem is a Multitech model MT2834ZDXI and is working fine as a fax,
    sending and receiving in a Windows 2000 Pro box.
    But when using it in the SBS box, if I send it a fax, it answers the call,
    starts to write the TIF file in the QUEUE directory but stops at 8 bytes and
    fails the reception with an error: "An error occurred while receiving the
    fax", in the fax monitor, and an event ID of 32092 in the event log.
    I tried several combinations like ignoring DTS, using XON/XOFF instead of
    hardware handshaking, raising the number of rings to 3 or 4 before
    auto-answer, all to no avail.
    The blasted thing answers the phone, starts receiving the fax and then
    miserably fails.

    Any suggestions about what can I try more? Should I buy another modem? I
    don't have a problem with that, it's just that, the modem works in another
    machine, and I am afraid that the problem is machine/SBS configuration

  3. Unfortunately, no... I have seen that article and tried the suggestion (it's
    in the first post...) and didn't work...

    And also, the modem answers, establishes the connection, says it is
    receiving the first page, and about 20-30 seconds after that, fails with an

    I have the same problem, have you solved it.

    I have same modem and same OS.
    It is in fact completely the same problem.

    Please tell me how to solve.

    I too have this exact same problem. If you look on Google we're not alone.
    I'm yet to see anything like a viable workaround, though, apart from
    increasing the number of rings before answering - which didn't work for me

    I am using an external US Robotics 56k modem (that's all the information I
    have at the moment) that from memory plugs into the parallel port. From what
    I can tell post-installation it does seem to be certified by Windows.

    My problem is partially solved by using another modem.
    Now i am using a USR Serial V90 PSTN modem.
    And it works.

    A lot of contributors to this group seem to have problems with USB and
    internal modems.
    However, some got them to work.
    It also seems that business-class, serial modems of USR work pretty
    well (does on my server too).
    Google the group .. there are lots of infos related to these issues.

    Hi Franz,

    Thanks for that - I've been out to where the modem's housed and it is a
    serial one. Don't know if this changes anything at all - I've tried replacing
    it but the only other one I have already is the same model.

    Problem sorted.....

    We replaced the fax/modem with an internal one; less than £10 from a firm
    I've never heard of and not digitally signed by Windows.

    I hope this helps others that are in this excruciating position!!

    I too have the same problem with the same modem (as per original post). After
    8 months, has anyone got this to work WITHOUT replacing their current modem?
