I’m trying to get T.38 passthrough working on Asterisk It isn’t working. Calls go through and are answered, but the fax machines are unable to communicate. I checked the value of CHANNEL(t38passthrough) and it seems to always be 0. One side is Level 3 T.38 TN and the other side is an Adtran NetVanta with POTS ports. What would cause Asterisk to not offer t38 passthrough on a channel?

  • Setting directmedia=no does not help. The calls still go through and the fax still fails after switching to T.38.

  • Do you have reinvite allowed? That was an issue on one of my installations if I am remembering correctly. Any debug, logs, confs that would help?
