Send/Receive faxes to a network fax/printer

I have network printer in my office. I was wondering if Asterisk is capable of sending and receiving faxes using this fax/printer machine through network cables.

What I want to accomplish is using shared lines for incoming and outgoing faxes using the fax machine.

It has a dedicated IP, and it is using TCP/IP for network protocol.

What do you think? Is it possible?

very possibly. First you want to get asterisk faxing (asterfax or spandsp maybe), then get it printing. You will want to set up CUPS to print to your printer and then have asterisk send the fax to cups.

The alternative is if the printer supports FTP uploading or emailing a TIFF file you could do it that way…
