Hi all,

This is my first time deploying a fax server so I need your recommendations about it.

- We have a Rightfax server using SR140 as fax boards. Which device should I connect the fax server to: CCM or VoiceGW? (I will use H.323)

- In both cases, there must be fax configurations in the voice gateway. So what do I have to configure? Do I need a TCL script to detect fax tone...?

Thanks for your reply.

You said "This is only required if you want users to have one number for voice and fax" --> so if I use different numbers for voice and fax, I don't have to configure TCL? (I have an E1 line and I can take one of the numbers (we have 30 DNs with this line) for fax)

Yes. If you don't want/need to have a single number for voice/fax you do not have to use TCL scripts for tone detection. You just have to create a dial-peer (h.323) or a route pattern (MGCP) to point to the fax server for the group of DNs you want to use for faxing.

Hope this helps.
