Inbound Fax not working

Brand new to Linux and FreePBX so bear with me. I’ve gotten my system 90% there, just need faxing for that last 10%. I do have fax pro, and can send faxes from it externally fine, but when I try to send inbound the sender gets a success but nothing shows up in UCP or email. Our PSTN is a PRI on a A101DE. FreePBX 13.0.182 Asterisk 13.9.1

The user extension is a chan_sip @ 5415 with an inbound route setup to catch a DID and send I to the destination Fax Recip > 5415. I’m not using the fax detection tab on the inbound routes since the destination is the Fax Recip.

In User Management > Fax I have it set to enabled, pdf, store locally yes.

When I call the DID I get fax tones, but when I send the sender gets a success, and I see this in the log.

Ok that is weird now it is working, maybe the fax updates today fixed it. I’ll try a larger fax to see if it is ok.

Ok just send and received a 16 page fax, so I guess there must have been a bug fix or something. Mods can delete this thread.

Now off to getting physical fax machines going via audiocodes mp114 fxs, wish me luck.
