    FreePBX has built-in Fax capabilities that seem to work out of the box:

    1.) Go into the Unembedded FreePBX "Fax Configuration" module and set it up.
    2.) Go into the Unembedded Extensions module and specify an e-mail for received faxes.
    3.) Point an inbound route at that fax destination.

    I haven't had a chance to really test it for reliability, but it does work for receiving faxes over a PRI.

    This makes me wonder: how has Elastix set this up to work? Is it using FFA, or SpanDSP, or some other piece of software? It definitely isn't connecting to HylaFax, that's for certain.
