I have FreePBX 184.108.40.206 running on Asterisk 13.18.3.
I can receive fax via the built-in standard fax capability of the FreePBX.
I am looking for a software running on my PC to send fax.
For example, MicroSIP allows me to connect with my FreePBX server to make call.
Is there similar software to MicroSIP that allow me to connect with my FreePBX and send fax?
Note: My VoIP provider does support T38 for me to send outbound fax.
After some investigation, this is not what I’m looking for.
It require Hylafax server component which has to be loaded onto a Linux machine. Then a separate client is required to feed the fax data into the hylafax server…
I know you mentioned that Hylafax isn’t what you’re looking for… but I would urge you to take another look.
I have Hylafax server set up on my PBX, with 8 IAX Virtual modems.
My PC’s use the Winprint Hylafax Gui, which works as a virtual printer. Anything that can be printed, can be faxed. They literally hit “Print” like they normally would, and choose Hylafax… they are then prompted for the fax number and off it goes.
The users can chain multiple pages together into a single fax, there is an “address book”, they get confirmation emails if it did or didn’t send.
If you only have a couple users that need to send faxes from the desktop you can just get faxmodems for their machines, and run the phone lines from those to a single TA then sip that to your FreePBX server. Then use the fax software in windows.
