First, plug a phone line to the 'Tel' port on the left side. Manual receive fax, pick up handset when fax is ringing and press 'Start' when you hear fax tone.
Auto receive - set the receive mode to 'Fax Only'
If your VOIP adapter has only one service line (VOIP PIN configured) then you have to remove the phone line and connect the FAX line. Now if you have the two service lines (in the both port separate VOIP PIN should be configured) - then you may connect this FAX to the other port. Both (Phone as well ad FAX) will work simultaneously. (Remember - two seperate PINS are required if you attach phone as well as FAX line in same adapter). After attaching the FAX - every think is normal like normal FAX line. Generally you don't have to dial pre country code like 011 or 00 or +, just dial the number starting from Country code.
No settings you could have changed would keep it from "sending"...."receiving", yes. If you are sure it is plugged into the proper jack on the machine (line), and the phone line has a dial tone, you're problem is more serious
The black curly cord goes from the phone receiver (handset) to the first jack on the left side of the fax (the one closest to the handset that's marked with a phone symbol). The flat grey cord is the phone cord. It connects the wall jack to the fax machine's third jack (the one closest to the back of the machine that's marked with the word "LINE").
