This wiki is for the standard Fax Configuration module, not the commercial version. For the commercial version, which adds outbound fax capability and the option to send/receive faxes in the User Control Panel (UCP), please see the Fax Pro wiki.

What is the Fax Configuration Module Used For?

Fax Configuration adds configurations, options, and a GUI for inbound faxing.

Application Note

In version 13+ of the PBX GUI software, visit the User Management module to enable faxing for a user. Fax settings for recipients are no longer found in the Extensions module. After you have enabled fax for a user, you can select the user as a Fax Recipient in the Inbound Routes module.

How do I get to the Fax Configuration Module?

  • In the top menu click Settings
  • In the drop down menu click Fax Configuration


Default Fax Header

Header information that is passed to remote side of the fax transmission and is printed on top of every page. This usually contains the name of the person or entity sending the fax.

Default Local Station Identifier

Outgoing Email address

Email address that faxes appear to come from if "system default" has been chosen as the default fax extension.

Email address

Email address that faxes are sent to when using the "Dial System Fax" feature code. This is also the default email for fax detection in legacy mode, if there are routes still running in this mode that do not have email addresses specified.

Error Correction Mode

Yes/No: Whether to use Error Correction Mode (ECM)

Maximum transfer rate

Maximum transfer rate used during fax rate negotiation.

Minimum transfer rate
