Faxing via VOIP

Postby chiefjim on Fri Jan 10, 2014 11:24 am

Are applications available that will permit a Mint 16 Mate system to fax to an external phone number using VOIP? All I have available is the recipients fax number. Being a government office I doubt they would be willing to release a URL even if that option were available.

Alternative if available would be to print a file directly using the fax number of the receiving machine.

Possible?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

There are some online faxing services that will allow you to send one or two faxes per day for free.
I have used http://www.myfax.com/free/ and it works well.

xoip.com is also a great fax service. Not free, but when signing up you get a few credits and for every fax toy receive you also get credits

That looks very promising. Do you get confirmation of delivery with the free trial?

Yes, you will get confirmation of delivery via email. The free trial version is all I've ever used.
