fax machine/fax modem on same phone line

By manvellos ·
I have a fax machine connected to a fax modem. When I send a fax from the computer it goes successfully but if I try sending another fax it fails. If I unplug the fax machine it is able to send fax.
i would like to keep the fax machine plug in themodem so it recieves faxes when the computer is on or of.

Switch the connections around.

Have the Fax machine plug into the phone line comeing from the wall and then plug the Computer into the Fax machine.

Remember! Only one device connected like this can be set to receive.
