Posted: May 27, 2006 by sankar in Analog, ATA186, Fax

To enable fax passthrough in a H323 IOS gateway: (This can be given under a dial peer or globally under voice service voip mode)

Global mode:

1.  modem passthrough nse [payload-type number] codec {g711ulaw|g711alaw} [redundancy] [maximum-sessions <value>]

* Payload-type default : 100 for IOS gateways (Set this to same for all other gateways)

* Codec should be g711ulaw for fax sent over a t1 trunk or g711alaw for fax sent over a e1 trunk

* redundancy – enables fax redundancy. Set this parameter to be same at both ends

* max sessions – defines how many fax calls can occur simultaneously. Default is 16. Valid values 1 – 26.

2. Disable Fax relay – Fax relay is enabled by default and takes precedence over Passthrough.
