Re: [hylafax-users] Hylafax+ With E1 card possible ?

Hi George,

Can you tell us which Cisco Router model you are plugging the VWIC-2MFT-E1
module into ?  Also which IP Voice/Fax network modules you are using ?

As Lee suggested you will save yourself a lot of time if you debug the fax
server on your POTS lines.  Once you have a reliable fax server up and
running then moving to the FXS ports on a router should be simple (that
said, if the router is using IP to move audio around your system then it's
probably never going to work reliably with Fax).

We're using VWIC-2MFT-E1 hardware with IP Voice/Fax network modules.
We can put the faxserver on POTS but I can't keep the same numbers and it'll
be very difficult to tell everyone to send faxes to a new number.
