Follow the steps below to configure HylaFAX Enterprise with your credentials:

Connect to the Appliance Console -- the menu area you see on screen when you boot the HylaFAX Enterprise Appliance server (not the web interface). If you don't have physical access to the server's console, you can attach to the Appliance Console by running attach-console from a remote SSH connection. Simply press CTRL-\ to disconnect from the console when you're done. Don't forget to activate your license!

Select "Advanced Options" -> "Configure Telco Connections"

Enter your settings into the following fields:
  • Gateway:
  • SIP From: sip:<<YOUR_DID>>     (example:
  • Username: <<YOUR_DID>>
  • Password: <<PASSWORD>>
  • Do SIP registration: Enabled
  • Allow U-Law: Enabled
  • T.38 Support: T.38 preferred
  • Outbound passthrough timeout (ms): 15000
  • Enable V.34: Disabled

=== Important: Substitute <<YOUR_DID>> and <<PASSWORD>> with your SIP Credentials. ===

Be sure to save your settings!

HylaFAX Enterprise T38Fax SIP Config

Select "Configure Dialing Options" and input the following settings:
  • Area Code: <<YOUR_LOCAL_AREA_CODE>> (999 by default, here 215)
  • Always dial local area code: Enabled
  • Always dial LD code: Enabled 

Save your settings -- and try to send a fax.

HylaFAX Enterprise T38Fax Dialing Config

For the last step, instruct your HylaFAX SIP stack to bind to UDP port 5080 instead of UDP port 5060. Connect to the server via SSH and add the following parameters to  callctrl-appliance.cfg  in the  /var/spool/hylafax/ifax/bt/config  directory. This will require a reload of the  hylafax-bt  service.

sip_Contact=<HylaFAX server ip address>:5080

The  sip_Contact  IP address must be present in the  ip addr command on the server or you will not be able to start the service correctly.

Amazon Web Services Marketplace

The HylaFAX Enterprise Appliance is also available on the Amazon Web Services platform. This pre-installed system will allow you to easily install HylaFAX Enterprise on Amazon EC2 and send/receive faxes with your account without having to manage your own virtualization infrastructure.
