i am using 1.8 as well, but since there is no native fax-support i try to compile with spandsp since weeks - unsuccessfully...
the GUI is not working for me either. i had comparable problems. sometimes i could see the interface, but when trying to open a menu or to login (don't remember it completely) nothing happened... it was loading forever...
Okay, thanks. Then I know my setup is not at fault here. Can someone more experienced than me give their view? I'm guessing there is some dependency missing for the GUI's page generation. How are they generated anyway?
thanks, but the patch is only for gateway-capabilities. i "simply" need the res_fax_spandsp compiled for asterisk1.8 on tomato / dd-wrt / openwrt, to get fax working...
Ah, so that's the audio to image module...
So faxing doesn't even work on DD-WRT's Asterisk currently! Okay, now we need a compilation expert too. (And one for the Asterisk-GUI as well!!!!)
What is also needed is the ability to detect faxes once a call has been answered. Is Asterisk on Optware able to do that? For example, for a SIP channel this is done with faxdetect = yes, which detects a fax by the fax tone, or when it sees a T.38 codec. Anyone knows if this should work already?
The old FIVN one is not included in Optware anymore, I believe. The asterisk-gui - 2.0.4-1 package in Optware is the official Digium one:
Chances are you installed that one after an Optware reinstall. I hope we can get it to work too; the official UI is actually useful, in comparison with the FIVN one.
Then about `that other broken part': can someone give us a reminder if someone compiled the fax module.

Have only read about this, but I think you want DISA, one example here. Doesn't seem very hard to setup, especially with direct access to the router (to alter config files). If successful, please post what worked.
BTW, the touted workaround for incoming GV calls (until the next release) is to send through SIPGate, to which the second line of the ATA can be registered. Then having outgoing and incoming calls on separate lines is the only annoyance -- everything works reliably. And it's all still free.

I've installed Asterisk on my RT-N16 via DD-WRT and configured its files respectively. Question is: I'm attempting to connect my IP Phone to my Asterisk box, how should I go ahead and locate the IP address of Asterisk? Thanks.

After some searching, I tried using IFCONFIG to locate the IP Address of Asterisk. Data displays on eth0, however, it does not display any sort of inet addr. Is there a configuration process that I did not perform? Any advice would be appreciated.
