configure FXO for faxing.

I need help configuring my voice gateway 2851 FXO to forward fax to my ax server number, using CUCM 8.5.

- I have an analog line in my Canada office (FXO) and need all fax send to US fax server. -

configure FXO for faxing.

Configure the FXO port with plar that points to an extension that redirects the call to CUCM via a dial-peer (assuming GW is integrated to CUCM via SIP/H323), then in CUCM make sure you have a matching route pattern that redirects this call to the fax server (assuming it is already integrated).

configure FXO for faxing.

Chris thanks for your response.


The Fax server is not integrated into CUCM and the fax number is external to CUCM.

What I am trying to accomplish, is to have the FXO port form my remote office send to my corp fax server

voice-port 0/3/1

description << to fax >>

connecton plar opx ??? (does this ext have to be configured in CUCM)

dail-peer voice 10 pots

destination-pattern xxxxxxxxxx

port 0/3/1

the gateway I am using is configured in CUCM for my voice circuit (T1).

Thanks for any help,

Nigel M


Re: configure FXO for faxing.

Hi Nigel,

No need to have this extension configured but the route to that number should be available.
