My main aim was to configure Google voice and my fax machine so that i could send fax via google voice.
Put your fax machine in the phone outlet.
Bring a phone which is connected to the phone outlet as well, you might need a long telephone cord sometimes.
Dial your google voice number on the phone. Press * to access account. Enter 4 digit pin.
Press 2 for ‘dial a number’.
Go to the fax machine and input the fax Number followed by the # sign. (Hang up the phone while dialing)
YourGoogleVoiceNumber–2–NumberOfFaxReceivingMachine (those are dashes in this number to insert 2 two second pauses).
You will here "this is a free call" and the fax will begin.
Go to your Google Voice account, select Settings, Phones and then the Edit option for the phone on which you have your fax machine residing. Open the "Show Advanced Settings." Then select "Yes" and "PIN not required (for added convenience)" for the "Direct access to voicemail when calling your Google number from this phone.
