Windows Fax

If I set the fax to receive after say 6 rings (I share the line as a voice line and Voicemail answers after 4) local fax/voice numbers work fine. However, if the fax (or voice call) is from a long distance number it only answers after 2 rings. This is because I have the custom Long Distance Ring (short-long-short). My $30 answering machine doesn't discriminate against long distance callers, four rings is four rings regardless of the ring style, but the short-long-short ring counts as 3 rings in Windows Fax. Is there some settings that I may have overlooked on my PC or are different ring styles no supported by Windows Fax?
