Configuring FortiVoice to send faxes

  1. Go to Call Feature > Fax > Sending Rule and click New.
  2. Enter a Name and click Enable.
  3. Under Dialed Number Match, click New.
  4. Enter a Match Pattern number. This is the extension number pattern in your dial plan that can match many different numbers for sending faxes.
  5. The following pattern matching syntax is supported, in order to match a wide range of potential numbers:

    Syntax

    Description

    X Matches any single digit from 0 to 9.
    Z Matches any single digit from 1 to 9.
    N Matches any single digit from 2 to 9.
    [ ]

    (brackets)

    Matches any digits in the brackets.

    For a range of numbers, use a dash.

    Example: [15-7].

    In this example, the pattern matches 1, 5, 6, and 7.

    .

    (period)

    Acts as a wildcard that matches any digit and allows for any number of digits to be dialed.

    Example of a pattern matching rule: XX.

    In this example, the system looks for a dialed number match that has three or more digits.

    !

    (exclamation point)

    Acts as a wildcard that matches any digit (including no digits) and allows for any number of digits to be dialed.

    Example of a pattern matching rule: XX!

    In this example, the system looks for a dialed number match that has two or more digits.

  6. Enter any required Modification settings, such as stripping or appending prefixes or postfixes to the number pattern, and click Create.
  7. Under Call Handling, click New.
  8. Set the appropriate Schedule, Action, and Outgoing trunk and/or Caller ID modification for your dial plan requirements, to determine the call handling action for the numbers matching the configured number pattern.
  9. Click Create, and Create again to finish configuring the Sending Rule.
