I have analog line which is connected to my fax machine (xerox pe120). I connected zaptel card (asterisk) to ext output of fax machine:
When somebody calls that line FaxMachine redirects call to asterisk. Asterisk answers.
It works fine.
Now i want to be able to receive both fax and normall calls on this line.
In FaxMachine manual i read that i can set ANS/FAX mode which allows for receiving fax and normal voice calls. In such situation user of external phone (asterisk here) answers all calls and if he hears fax signal he types 9 on phone (tone dialing) which gives fax signal, which activates fax machine which will start to receive fax.
How can i configure calling 9 in asterisk ? Is not * a special character ?
Did somebody do something similar ?
