I’m needing to upgrade Asterisk from 10.x to whatever the recommended version is that will allow me to continue to use Fax For Asterisk.

I don’t have many upgrade windows, I’d like to get the most bang for my buck, but I can’t afford to be a beta tester on this server.

The FFA site says that it’s supported by Asterisk version 12 and lower, but version 12 doesn’t seem to be supported. Perhaps my information is outdated….?

Anyway, I can’t go with the spandsp route because my system listens for AMA¬†events that spandsp doesn’t seem to produce and I can’t emulate easily.

Any recommendations would be very welcome.

  • Asterisk 11 is the last supported version that would do FFA, but it’s only supported for security fixes. It will go totally EOL October 25th of this year.

  • Hi,

    We use with success on our production the builtin fax in Asterisk 13, based on spandsp. We have several lawyers that use this feature each day with no major issues to my knowledge. However, we have enabled T38 on the entire chain and we have a carrier that handles T38 pretty well.

    Before that, we had more frequent failures.
