The error, as mentioned above, appears due to the reception of an unexpected message (bad response) when the bulk fax service asked for the remote fax machine's fax capabilities. Kerio Operator is not receiving a CFR (Confirmation to Receive) signal from the Provider side after sending the DCS (Digital Command Signal). The SIP flow diagram below shows this faulty behavior:
To resolve this issue, you need to contact your Provider, as some Providers may require Direct dial-in (dedicated) to send faxes. You can generate a Network trace (Packet Dump) while reproducing the issue. You can also Capture Network Communication using Packet Sniffer in Kerio Operator.
