Can you send faxes from PC's using asterisk?

Hi there,

I know that you can receive faxes with Asterisk but can you also send faxes using Asterisk?



check out this page: .

you need “two Asterisk applications: app_rxfax and app_txfax which work on top of a library called spandsp.”

to send a fax you can use a call file that looks like this:

Channel:ZAP/5/512XXXXXXX MaxRetries: 0 WaitTime: 20 Application:txfax Data:/var/spool/asterisk/fax/1153265170.50.tif|caller
if you want to make the process more interactive (meaning users can send faxes from desktop) then check out Asterfax or Hylafax in combination with iaxmodem.
