  • Removed stupid 2-3 seconds delay when dialing any number longer than 10 digits. This is critical when starting multiple concurrent calls.
  • Changed modem installation procedure. When you add a modem, the installer no longer updates drivers for previously installed modems. Fixed some specific problems with the installation of modems on some systems.
  • A faster way to enumerate COM Ports and Modems installed in your system applied. WMI no longer used for this purpose.

  • Fixed various problems with printing and using printto function. New Repair printto verbs function corrects printing and repairs standard file associations under System user account on Windows 8. On all systems, this function adjusts the correct file associations for the current user. Also, the direct call to the shimgvw.dll library instead of printto now used where possible.
  • Added icons on the START and STOP buttons. Shield icon used to indicate that administrator rights are required. Other standard system icons applied where possible.

Version 2.1.1

  • SIP part of the program has undergone significant changes. Correct and stable SIP registration is now supported. Fax Voip was successfully tested for the stable operation with a large number of t38 SIP providers directly. Now Fax Voip program accepts incoming fax calls without problems. You can use Fax Voip as an extension to the SIP PBX. There is no need to provide a static route for incoming calls. No problems with the Outbound Proxy feature as well.
  • It is now possible to save incoming faxes directly in TIFF or PDF files. Fax Voip can redirect all incoming t38 fax calls in TIFF or PDF files without using a standard fax software, and without limiting the number of incoming fax sessions. In this mode, the virtual modem lines are not involved and can be used for outgoing t38 fax calls. It was designed and implemented a special software for the convenience of handling incoming faxes: FaxVoip Log Book.

Version 1.1.3

  • Added support for G723.1 codec and GSM 06.10 codec. T38 is a special fax protocol for sending faxes over voip. But it is impossible to start calls without voice codecs. If your SIP provider does not support G711 codec, you can use G723 or GSM codecs. Now you can select voice codecs in the Fax Voip FaxModem Control panel.
  • Added support for STUN server. It is very impotant feacher for using with some SIP providers. Now you can enter STUN server name in the Fax Voip FaxModem Control panel.
  • Fixed some errors in using Outbound Proxy. This feacher is correct now.
    Added some comments about using Fax Voip with AXON PBX, as for incoming fax calls from external SIP Network to Fax Voip. If you have problems with incoming faxes, it is important to check Use static IP address and static mapped ports option in AXON PBX in the Network Settings panel and enter External SIP port and External RTP port starting from... values. No need to enter your Public IP address here.
