Take my apologies if this 100 post regarding sending faxes in elastix. I have fallowed the Elastix without tears and was able to setup SipGate with getting faxes to email even though the guide is for 1.6 (slightly different). I have also noticed that 2.0 still has a problem with FAX VIEWER - no inbound faxes (even in folders) Just out faxes (exactly one) just showed up. The same thing after yum update.

I have trouble to set up outgoing faxes with 2.0 As I would like to and see in that way I can send faxes through WINXP and using any trunk (callcentric, Voipinnovations) just send it from WINXP or even from Elastix GUI SEND FAX.

I have searched but there is no clear guide for 2.0 as is only (Video) for 1.6

Can you post any info how to make 2.0 outbound faxes work?

Thank You

What codec are you trying to send faxes with?

Have you setup Digiums asteriskfax? Are you using T38?

Thank you for response.

The trunk that I will use is SIP trunk and over that trunk I would like to send faxes.

I believe that T38 is possible to setup with Asterisk 1.6 that is included in Elastix 2.0

T38 is also more reliable as I read.

I think you would be best to look at installing the digium asteriskfax module. It supports t38 faxing in asterisk 1.6. For 1 fax channel it is free.

This is really a pain .... what works in 1.6 does not work in 2.0

just Linux world ..... do you know or have any working guide of installation ?

DOn't know if better stay with IAXMODEM and HYLAFAX or install DIGIUM t38


found one working link but for 1.5 elastix:
http://www.elastix.org/component/kunena/3/24507/

OK I was able to setup all and it works. However; with Google Voice and IPKALL when sending outbound fax was not always successful, so I have installed DIGIUM free T38 that works pretty well (so far 100% out successful of send faxes.

the only thing is and i believe it is a bug that i can't see any inbound faxes in FAX Viewer even thought I had received them.

Can you please share how to fix that?

Thank You

Re:Elastix 2.0 sending faxes - resolved

Well I can live without inbound faxes in FAX VIEWER .... and will wait for a work around or patch.

Thank you everyone for help.
