    Ok so... I am new to Elastix and I was really excited when I saw that the distro included Haylafax. However I am soooo confused.

    I know that the Fax Service does not work well with VoIP. My question is how does the fax service work on Elastix?

    Can I use a Channel on my PRI T1 Card?
    Can I use a Port on my FXO Card?
    OR
    Do I need a special fax modem card?

    Is that what it is used for or is it like the Trixbox Pro where each user has their own fax machine via their DID?

    Please help me understand this or point me inthe direction of a good explination of the fax services included in Elastix.

    Regards,
    Tucker

    Tucker;

    Elastix Without Tears explains how to set this up on your system.

    We have about 30 inbound virtual fax channels on one of our installations and user Cisco ATA adapters to connect fax machines for outbound fax through VoIP channels with our provider with out a single customer complaint..

    We also use the fax soft client with great success for sending faxes.

    Good Luck;
    Bob
