    3CX is not supporting sending fax, unless you use an ATA and fax machine.
    Fax server for sending faxes was available long time ago, may be in version 7.

    Currently only fax-to-mail, i.e. receiving faxes is supported by 3CX on T.38 capable trunks, for all other operations you need an ATA and a fax-machine.

    Hi,
    Depending on your SIP trunk provider they may have a fax service which will mean you don't have any hardware to procure/administer
    We have this with our provider, basically you email a pdf of the fax service to an email address including the destination number and it gets sent.
    for incoming faxes an internal mailbox is set-up to receive fax comms also via pdf
    Neil.

    We use http://www.t38faxvoip.com/fsp/ it works as a virtual modem and you can use Windows Fax Service to receive faxes from the system. Depending on volume you can add more port licenses and receive more simultaneous calls. It will require you to install it on a separate server or else you may have some port conflicts since it acts as a SIP client.
