    I have a virtual fax setup in elastix 1.6.2-2. it is running and idle. Where do I send faxes from, from elastix or windows 7? If from windows 7, I would like it all connect to our elastix and send from there so there is a record recorded.

    Hi, you can use a hylafax client to send faxes from windows 7 or you can install avantfax and send faxes from a web interfaces.

    yum install elastix-avantfax

    PS. you have to enable the beta repos

    You've mentioned elastix 2.0 will have a web interface to send faxes, is it avantfax? Since elastix is scheduled to come out July 1 2010, it is not far off to wait.

    Question #1
    I did "yum install elastix-avantfax --nogpgcheck" and it worked.

    Question, during installing through ssh, I see this (below). How do I configure email to fax?

    ####### CONFIGURE POSTFIX #######
    Shutting down postfix: [ OK ]
    Configuring Email to FAX for domain fax.example.com
    ####### CONFIGURE FAXMAIL #######
    Starting postfix: [ OK ]
    Done

    Question #2
    I cannot seem to get elastix web interface like I use too ... before avantfax installed. Should i reboot?

    I have installed avantfax by elastix repos but when I go to http://domain-name.com/avantfax/admin, it says database is down. When I look into this database has not been installed.

    What is elastix 2.0 planning to use as a web interface? This might be a better way to go.

    you have to go the avantfax config file and update the mysql password field to the default elastix mysql password that is if you have not changed it yet.
