hi,

today i upgraded from Asterisk 1.4.21 to 1.6.2.9 (i know this release is not supported anymore, please don’t tell me to upgrade).

unfortunately now i can’t use the rxfax() application anymore. i tried to use ReceiveFAX() the way i used to use rxfax() (multiple dedicated fax extensions getting their faxes from isdn via zaptel/dahdi), but this doesn’t work.

either fax receiving “works” (tiff file there), but the result isn’t mailed like described here

http://forums.asterisk.org/viewtopic.php?p1415

or in a slightly different setup i get “Fax detected, but no fax extension”.

i need multiple fax extensions. how do i do this? separate contexts for each fax extension with a “fax extension”? i didn’t manage to do this.

i know i didn’t post any config and my description is rather crude, but maybe someone understands my problem and can point me in the right direction.

thx matthias
