Hi!


Please check the following link, specially Pg. 9 "ISDN/MGCP Cisco Fax Relay Mode" . You'll see the deployment models of the Cisco Fax server: IP T.38 Fax Relay, ISDN E1/T1 Direct Connection and ISDN/MGCP Cisco Fax Relay Mode:


*** Installation Guide Supplement for Cisco Fax Server ***

Hope this helps!


Regards,


Teresa.


If it helps, please rate! :)

Hi Met,


Cisco fax relay is a proprietary fax method, and while Cisco Fax Server has the word Cisco in it, it is designed/maintained by RightFax. Thus, it does not support Cisco Fax Relay.


It's a legacy method anyhow, and T38 is much more preferred.

Thanks,


So can't I send faxes from FXS connected normal fax machines using fax relay in the gateways to the fax server?

Hi Met,


You can, you just use T38:


voice service voip

fax protocol t38 fallback none



The only restriction is you can't fax to SCCP controlled FXS ports. MGCP will have:


no mgcp fax t38 inhibit

mgcp package fxr





hth,

nick
