Help with faxing to email

I am installing a new FreePBX Distro 1.812.210.57. I need to setup sever fax to email extension. This extension will be only for incoming faxing. Can someone please help me find some documentation on how to do this. We are using SIP trunking. The existing old FreePBX 2.1.3 running Asterisk has some custom programing that does fax to email but I don’t seem to be able to get that to work.

Alan this documentation is due for a refresh, but here is a Fax user guide.

And a Video Guide for the Fax Pro/ XactFax commercial module.

If you just follow the first half of the guides you will be able to set-up your incoming faxes.

If you would like to be able to send faxes from the User Interface (ARI) you can always add the FaxPro Commercial module to your installation:

Preston, thanks for the doc links. I was in a real rush to get this done so I used the very fine support of Matt from Schmooze Com to assist. Matt explained how to make it work in about 10 minutes.

Matt continued to work on other issues we were having at this site until about 3AM!!! Matt rocks!!!


Thanks for the kind words on our support. We try hard and Matt is a great asset to the support of FreePBX.
