FXS and Faxes

Hi all,

I cant for the life of me get my fax solution to work I brought a VIC2-2FSX and want to have two fax machines off of it. Does anyone have a config already configured I can look at. I seem to get one thing sorted then another thing breaks. Exsample inbound calls go to the right port but only one will ring. or I plug a phone into port 0 and I pick up the phone and port 1 goes off hook

Thanks

Paul

Hi Luc,

The next hop is a sip hop, but the gateway is h323. It seems to be more a phisical voice port conf issue as the calls are doing strange things.

Thanks

Hi,

please check that your phone/fax cable use two and only two central wires in the rj-11 connector. Port 1 is also cabled in port 0 as ping 2-5 and some phones can cuase that using multiwire cable.

Hope this helps, please ratepost if it does!
