T.37 On-ramp Faxing details

I have used the T.37 on-ramp faxing before for clients, but never used the wildcards to make it easier on myself (or I thought). Has anyone implemented this using the '$d$' wildcard to send fax-emails to the server?

According to this and the traces that I have seen you have to create email accounts with 'FAX=xxxxxxxxxx' where the x's notate your incoming dialed number (could be 10 or less digits). But the point is that my client says that he cannot use the '=' character in an email alias. Has anyone found a way around this?

I cannot really help with your question (apparently "=" is allowed per rfc in the local part of email), but since I was researching the subject, wanted to ask you, which platform / IOS are you using?

All the documentation references a builtin fax_on_vfc_onramp_app that is not present the the latest images for 2800 ISR.

Yes, have seen that = is allowed for many systems, however, not the one my client is using.

This IS running on a 2811. The fax_on_vfc_onramp_app service is a part of the TCL application that is downloadable from CCO TCLWARE page. It is not included by default on Flash, but is readily available.

Hi and thanks.

I've downloaded but it does not define the fax_on_vfc_onramp_app service. I can configure that under a mmoip DP, but I think it will not work ? I do not see any other relevant file in the TCLware page.

What do you see doing

sh call application voice summary

on your 2811 ?

It does take a reboot before the service is available, I assume you have done this.

Re: T.37 On-ramp Faxing details

Just as a side note:

Cisco recommends that you dedicate a router for offramp/onramp faxing, as the rendering of the fax into tiff format and back can consume a lot of memory and CPU. Same with Unity server. If you have lot of users using this feature with Unity, you may as well buy a third party fax server like Rightfax or Cisco fax server (Captaris).
