    Apparently 3CX requires that dedicated fax number be used to receive faxes or requires that the user enter the FAX extension. The former is difficult for a company that only has 1 external number and the latter is not an acceptable thing to require.

    Other devices already deal with this by assuming a call is a voice call and then auto transfers the call to the fax extension if it detects the sending fax greeting tone. In this way we can publish one number as our voice and fax number and then 3CX would deal with the calls that are faxes automatically.
