I am running FreePBX 220.127.116.11 and Asterisk 18.104.22.168
In setting up the fax service for my FreePBX system I went ahead and installed the digium provided fax license which was free for the first license and since it was only $40 I thought what the heck get a second. Everything installed fine as i went to the asterisk CLI and it said the two licenses were installed. Then I went into the FreePBX gui and then configured > fax configuration... which really there isn't much there to configure. Then I went to extensions and created an extension user for the fax line. Then I enabled the fax and put an email address in the fax email section. Then i setup an inbound route for the fax extension, went to detect faxes and clicked yes, fax detection = sip, fax detection time = 2 and fax destination = my fax extension user.
So after trying several times trying to fax to this user and trying it with other extensions i was not able to fax as it appears that the FreePBX system is not able to accept any faxes.
So after doing some more searching on the forums and internet it appears that i did everything correctly except intall the FreePBX fax module?
Is this the only way to go or is there some sort of work around?
