T.38 Inbound Faxing with Voice Gateway

Unanswered Question

I found a document but not the TCL scripts for excepting incoming faxing through a voicegateway. I was told that we can do incoming faxing through a voicegateway but can not find any scripts on how to implement it. The only thing I found was this "Configuring T.38 Fax Relay" document.


Thanks

A quick question to clarify your exact faxing requirements.


Are looking for on-ramp faxing solution whereby a conventional fax received from the PSTN is converted and to an email with TIFF attachment and forwarded to a mail-store such as Exchange?


If this is the case then take a look at the follow document:-


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_4t/voice/cisco_ios_fax_and_modem_services_over_ip_application_guide/t37.html


If you are simply looking at configuring conventional faxing, basically two fax machine communicating directly then look into the possibility of using an FXS VWIC in your gateway for connecting an analogue device.


Another option to consider is the VG224 if you are consolidating multiple analogue devices.


The following link describes configuring FXS modules with MGCP.

The following document link is for the VG224 product guide:-
