Configure MGCP BRI for FAX

Unanswered Question
Feb 20th, 2007


i have a 2801 with a vic2-2bri and 4fxs voice ports.

Also the ccm is 5.0(x) and the gateway is configured as MGCP (I just hate MGCP for these simple implementation but i found it configured and i didn't want to change it!!Otherwise i would use H323 which i think behaves better)

A specific number that hits bri, gets translated and points to the faxmodem attached at the fxs. So i guess there is no conversion to voip?

This scenario works fine with voice (no extra congif needed with an analog phone attached to the FXS) but

in order to receive/send fax with no problems, is there something else i must add in:

Bri port config via CCMadmin page?

fxs port config via CCMadmin page?

bri port in IOS?

fxs port in IOS?

MGCP config in IOS?



I have this problem too.

do you have the commands:

"network-clock select" and "network-clock-participate".

These commands are very important to send/receive faxes adequate.
