Level 1
Level 1

Dear All,

I need to configure fax service in as5350 and as I have basic knowledge about this issue , so I really appreciate If you provided me with detailed information.

fax machin-->as5350

I want to whenever I call to the Bnumber of the E1 , I hear the fax handshaking .

The Voip and Pots Dialpeer are configured with t38 fax and the fax rate 14400

but I couldn't here the fax tone . before I use fax server I need the cisco to make a Sip ack to the fax .

I don't know whether my question is crystal clear or not , but I just want to hear the fax tone ,

is it need a special modem for fax other than for the voice ?

I have this problem too. I'm doing this not with SIP, but with H323. I did this many times on other Cisco gateways and it is working. I can send the fax from Fax server, but not to receive fax. I don-t get fax tone. There is some communication between gateway and fax server. The fax call get good dial-peer:

Can anybody help me?



Hi, if T.38 is not a must, try to disable it. Fax passthrough has less interop issues.

dial-peer voice 101 voip
 description Inbound_call

 modem passthrough nse codec g711alaw
 voice-class codec 10
 session target ras
 dtmf-relay rtp-nte
 fax protocol pass-through g711alaw
 fax rate disable
 no vad


If you want to test T.38, this is my config:


dial-peer voice 100 voip
 description T.38

 dtmf-relay h245-alphanumeric
 codec g711alaw
 fax-relay ecm disable
 fax rate 14400
 fax protocol t38 ls-redundancy 0 hs-redundancy 0 fallback pass-through g711alaw
 no vad


Also, check IOS version. I suggest at least a 12.4.



Hi Daniele,


Thanks for this. I just change H323 to SIPv2 and all start to work. I will use SIP on this project, but I will have this in mined for some new installation.
