Hi, no additional configuration is needed. In fact, you don't even need "fax rate voice".

If you're doing simple pots-to-pots you should have much of a problem.  Take fax rate voice off, as it's unnecessary for your configuration.  Othen that, this could be a working configuration.


Make sure your voice card doesn't have 'no local-bypass' under voice-card 0.  (local bypass is on by default).


From here you probably just have a simple dial peer problem.  Do a 'debug voip ccapi inout' and see what the incoming called number is for incoming faxes, and change your destination pattern.  For outgoing calls, use a plain analog phone and determine exactly which digits you need to use (with or without a 1, any access codes, 7/10 digit dialing, etc).


What exactly is the problem you have?

Hi Nick thanks for your reply, he porblem is that even without the fax rate voice DISABLED it doesn't work i can receive a Fax call.

If you plug an analog phone into the port instead of a fax machine does it ring?  This probably not a problem specific to faxing.
