Hi.

I'm not using this contrib (if you speak about smerpfax), but I'm using hylafax, with smeserver-hylafax from dungog, and some customization. With this, I've installed iaxmodem rpm from trixbox repository (I even recompiled the binary iaxmodem to have the latest version). It's working with asterisk, I can send and receive faxs through my pstn line with no problem. You just need to create a iax extension in asterisk. then configure iaxmodem to use this account (in /etc/iaxmodem/iaxmodem-cfg.ttyIAX). Once this is done, configure hylafax to use the iaxmodem

faxaddmodem ttyIAX

You can let the default answer for most of the question.
C'est la fin du monde !!! :lol:

Do you mean you can send/revieve over VOIP with no need for a modem ?
ie We already use the pstn line / modem by default

This would  be a nice addition to the hylafax wiki page, if you care to update it

I mean there's no need to have a dedicated pstn line for faxs, as asterisk will detect if it's a fax and then send it to the good extension. This way, a PME/TPE can use just one line for calls and faxs. Using iaxmodem instead of a physical modem will save you one FXO port. But sending faxs through an IP trunk doesn't work well, there's too much packet lost. I'll try to add this in the wiki, but I first need to learn how to use it (I never used wiki :/)

Cheers, Daniel
