Summary

This technote provide steps which enable the manual configuration of the receive mode setting for Brooktrout devices.

The receive mode is set to 1 by default in the Zetafax Brooktrout device controller. This is the manual fax receiving mode and skips the initial CED tone of a fax message to speed up start up performance. There is an automatic mode which does include the initial CED tone and, in some instances, this can alleviate receiving problems.
