I have run in to an issue that I need a little guidance on. I have searched the all mighty Google and have found a little about the issue but I am still stumped…
I have 184.108.40.206 that I installed from ISO with Asterisk 1.6.2.x 64-bit. I will only be using this box for a Conference bridge and Fax For Asterisk server.
I went to the Digium AddOns menu and installed Free Fax For Asterisk and Fax For Asterisk. I then obtained a free FFA license and applied it. I now show “Max Registrations” which is good. However, when I create a virtual extension and look at the section to enter an email address for fax delivery, I get this error.
“ERROR: No FAX modules detected! Fax-related dialplan will NOT be generated. This module requires Fax for Asterisk or spandsp based app_fax or app_rxfax to function.”
Should the FFA installation be as simple as clicking the install button?
When I do a “core show applications” in the CLI I don’t see anything related to faxing. So then tried to “yum install asterisk16-res_fax.x86_64” only to be told that it conflicts with an already installed Asterisk Addons package. THEN I learned that there really isn’t a conflict. It’s more of a GPL licensing thing and this was intentionally broken to play by the rules…
So I am still stuck with not being able to get the FFA installed. I am looking for any advice on where to look next…
I appreciate it.
