    I recently battled with getting my 4114 working on the newest v15.5.
    One thing I found was that you are blocking FAX extensions over the WAN.

    With more and more people moving to hosted PBX solutions, it makes no sense
    to block anything over the WAN and not at least give a way to unblock it.

    I had FAX extensions assigned to the 4114 and was getting the error "SIP request (REGISTER) from {my.internet.IP} was rejected. Reason: Block WAN requests is ON". I changed the extension from a FAX to a normal user extension, unchecked the 'disallow use...outside the LAN' box, and it started working finally.

    We need to be able to use FAX extensions over the WAN as well.

    I would also like to know how to do this. What fax server software are you using?

    He is asking about 3cx Fax Extensions using ATA. So in this case, no Fax Server.
