    Hi to all

    I want to share my experience faxing with Elastix 2.0x (Asterisk 1.6x)

    Just a couple of tips:

    1)In the iax extension set to NO the requirecalltoken parameter

    2)When you create a virtual fax in Elastix it create en Iax modem in /etc/iaxmodem/iaxmodem-cfg.ttyIAXx where x is the number of the modem. If you open this file you can see someting like this:

    device /dev/ttyIAX1
    owner uucp:uucp
    mode 660
    port 40003
    refresh 300
    peername xxxx (the number of iax extension)
    secret yyy (the secret of the iax extension)
    cidname Eraclito
    cidnumber zzzzzz
    codec slinear

    you see the last line codec . To let it work you HAVE TO SET in the iax extension the same codec in the allow codec parameter

    In this way my fax work fine !!

    Have a nice day
