    Have you ever used the Fax to e-mail option in Asterisk? Does it work like the description says, simple e-mail's any fax that comes in?
    From what I've been reading and my experience on the subject it seems to be hit and miss.

    After spending a couple of week checking cabling, echo and anything else that could go wrong, I moved the client on to a hosted Fax 2 Email and Email 2 Fax.

    Fax should have gone the way of the dodo a long time ago.

    Rant over

    Hi, I am looking into this myself as we are trying to cut costs, can I ask if this was expensive? What sort of running costs are involved? Have you got a separate setup for the Voip and the Internet? We are using the county as our internet provider but they will not open ports for Voip.

    Yes, dead easy:

    1. Get an account with someone providing the IAX (Inter-Asterisk Exchange) protocol, and configure it in iax.conf in Asterisk (don't know how that translates into configuring it on AsteriskNOW, though).
    2. Open the IAX port on your firewall
    3. Voipon work on pre-pay credit, so buy some of that
    4. Configure your dialplan appropriately

    IAX uses just one port, so it's NAT-friendly, wheras SIP relies on arbitrary ports being opened across a wide range, so it's much less easy to deal with. In fact IAX was designed with this limitation in mind, so it does it extremely well.
    Can you recommend cheap VOIP cheap credit provider for international calls? Thanks

    Not really: £60 each for the phones, reused an old box for Asterisk, and £30 to port the geographic number to the VoIP trunk provider.

    Just the call charges and internet connection.

    This was for a small business, so no county involved. VoIP and normal traffic are all over one connection.
