Offramp unable to FAX Tif file


Configured fax on/off-ramp on 3725 router.

fax----(pstn)---(fxo)3725-----mailserver/client hosted on one pc.

Client is outlook express and quick n' easy mail server.

Onramp works perfectly.

However Offramp is having a problem with faxing the tif file attached. The only thing we get is the email coverpage/header and no faxed graphics.

I had this setup working before (just on different pc) but now it doesn't.

Used lotus notes client/server and outlookexpress client with same output.

Two things i am wondering if this caused the problem from the debug fax mta all:

*Mar 2 06:37:50.955: //-1/D50B9C44800B/SMTPS/esmtp_server_engine_dot_check:

Not found the terminating Dot!


*Mar 2 06:38:35.955: //-1/D50B9C44800B/SMTPS/rejectMessage:


mime: Total=7, Rejected=1, Ignored=3

Any ideas what the meaning of this debug?

I am starting to guess that it maybe a dsp problem.

Any hints? Any configuration that i miss?




Re: Offramp unable to FAX Tif file

Add the command to the gateway “no dial-peer outbound status-check pots" as this problem appears to be a configuration issue.

Offramp is only supported IP to pots. For offramp tiff comes in on email then need to be converted to faxtone, gateway sets up as locally attached fax machine to terminating fax doing t.30, this is only possible terminating to an outbound pots peer.

Re: Offramp unable to FAX Tif file

Added the "no dial-peer outbound status-check pots" but didn't solve the issue.

I had similar setup with this but thru E1 instead of fxo which is working.

This config was also working before i deployed it on client site as demo. But for unknown reason, this problem was encountered.

Changed the FXO and NM module but same problem.

Any ideas?
