This article applies to NET SatisFAXtion 8.5.


Brooktrout TR-114 or TruFax hardware does not answer inbound calls, Admin shows them as Not-Responding or in some rare cases the machine appears to lock up.


First verify the firmware is not up to date.
Navigate to the Fax Servers installation directory - (typically) C:\Program Files\NET SatisFAXtion\Bfax
Open btcall.cfg with notepad.

In the firmware section look for v219-2m.pex

firm16 C:\PROGRA~1\NETSAT~1\bfax\V180-16.PEX
firmware C:\PROGRA~1\NETSAT~1\bfax\v202-164.pex
firmware_2m c:\flatland\BFAX\v219-2m.pex

If the path to this file is "c:\flatland\bfax" it is not updated.

If your version of the fax server is 7.5 or older, then also include the steps in "Version 7.5 Instructions"

Follow these instructions if your version of the fax server is 8.0 or newer

To update the firmware, download the attached v219-2m.pex file to your fax servers, .\Bfax directory
Change the firmware-2m line in btcall.cfg to include the correct path to this file
