I (asterisk newbee) am testing with fax-receiving with rxfax.
In extensions.conf I have for example:
exten => 2222,1,rxfax(/test/testfax.tif)
exten => 2222,2,Hangup
This works, rxfax answers with fax-tones when I locally dial 2222.
But when using this setup is used for incoming calls from my sip-provider the line is not answered by asterisk. It does not make a difference if I have the ‘answer’ statement in the script.
So this does not work:
exten => xxxx,1,rxfax(/test/testfax.tif)
exten => xxxx,2,Hangup
(xxxx is my sip-accountname) When this part of extensions.conf is replaced by voicemail script, or any other ‘talking’ script, it works fine. Only ‘rxfax’ does not seem to work.
When calling from a PSTN landline to my sip-provider-number, I can see the incoming call on the asterisk terminal screen, I see rxfax starting-up, but the line is not ‘picked-up’ by asterisk, the connection is not established seen from the pstn line. (It does not make a difference if I use the Answer statement)
Any idea’s where I have to look ? Could it be a ‘rights’ thing not allowing scripts when called from external or something like that ?
