Symptom

After configuring a MultiTech modem with Zetafax, incoming faxes appear black in the Zetafax client.

Cause

Certain MultiTech modems receive the fax transmission as a black document; there are two parameters that can be used to resolve the issue.

Resolution

  1. Locate the zfax\system\z-db\SETUP.INI (where zfax is the name of the Zetafax server share).
  2. Scroll down the file until you find the FCLASS paragraph for your modem, e.g. [FCLASS-1].
  3. On a new line type:

ReceiveReversed: YES
