    With going to the cloud there is no internal LAN any more.

    And german Medics and Lawyers need there FAX.

    Adding Grandstream HT701, HT801 Cisco SPA112 to the supported devices would also be great.

    Currently only Patton device is there because i can't find a place to buy the welltech in germany.

    Why not use one of the many web based fax solutions.

    Holding a sheet of paper, adding something to it with a tool as simple as a pen is essential to faxing.
    Progressing technology is trying to make it obsolete, but it's "solutions" will never be fully accepted, if it (and its supporters) do not understand, that this kind of user convenience is an important part of a lot of peoples daily worklife.

    - i don't know of any "digital" replacement, that would result in equal or even close to equal workflow efficiency
    (for people which do not have a PC as their main working machinery, which are propably most workers - they just lack voice power in the digital world)
    - at least in germany it is the only "juristic-safe" solution to send important documents, besides expensive snail-mail

    We stopped selling 3CX until they made fax in the cloud possible. Sadly the customers who did not take 3CX now, will take it never, because no one changes phone on an yearly basis....

    +1 here as well
    And yes, the most commonly used devices like HTxxx and SPAxxx aren't supported. Why? -retorical

    We just sold our first 3CX solution and now have this to stumble upon.
    We could just use a regular extension for connecting the ATA from outside the LAN, but it seems that this way there is no option of FAX pass-through, and it defaults to T.38 which our SIP Trunk doesn't have.

    Ohhhh boy.
