Fax from asterisk thru zap channel

Is it possible to have Asterisk send a fax via a zap channel?

I have repeated requests to fax a specific document to people and I’d like to just dial a few numbers into my asterisk box instead of dealing with a fax machine.

Here is what I want to do:

  1. Dial an extension.
  2. Prompt user to enter a telephone number.
  3. Send a .tif or .pdf file to the entered telephone number over POTS on a zap channel.

Any direction and help is appreciated. Thanks!


No “sendfax” type command or equivalent method available?
