Fax Detection Setup Questions

We're hoping to setup fax detection on a PSTN line of ours.  We have a pstn fax line plugged into a FXO port.  We would like to have our UC520 setup so that if a call comes in, if it is determined to be a fax, it automatically forwards it to extension 205 (our fax machine).  If the call is determined to be a call, the user just uses the autoattendant as usual.  We don't want to get involved with fax-email servers.  Is this possible using the Cisco fax detection script?

It sounds like you can accomplish somewhat of what you desire with the Configuring Fax Detection on UC500 document located at that link; however it requires faxing to email via the Onramp script  Also more details on FAX capabilites in SBSC can be located in this document here.  Review these documents and see if this will suit your needs.

Best Regards,
