    last time I've used it, I've noticed that for the fax you can only use number on the IAX secret. Letters are not accepted. Check that your IAX extension secret only has numbers and retry.

    you're welcome

    I don't know if we can consider that a bug or not. But for sure it would be nice to have it documented as you are not the only one who tripped on this issue.

    I think I may have encountered a problem with this.

    I upgraded FreePBX to take advantage of a few new features and discovered that while the fax module requires only numbers for its secret. FreePBX won't let you create an IAX secret without letters.

    I'll probably update the database manually or something to get around this. However I'm curious to know if there's a better workaround.

    Thank you!

    EDIT: I forgot about the "integrated" version of FreePBX in Elastix. I just updated the secret there and voila, all is good. Still, this issue might need some attention in the future.
