Fax File Types
Users can fax the following document types through the web management interface. Additional options are
available through the FaxFinder Client.
■ PDF
■ PS
■ TIF or TIFF
■ TXT
Note: When printing from another application, FaxFinder sends the file as TIF images.
Requirements
The FaxFinder Fax Server is an IP enabled fax server that works with other devices and services on your
communication network to send and receive faxes and to perform administrative functions. FaxFinder requires:
■ SMTP server access
Used to distribute FaxFinder emails that contain faxes, administrative notices, and log files.
■ Multi-Tech recommends that you create a DNS A record for FaxFinder.
■ Depending on the location of email recipients and IP resources, FaxFinder may also require WAN
access through your network’s Internet gateway.
■ Analog phone lines that provide dial tone and ring voltage at traditional levels and cadence
To fully use FaxFinder’s inbound fax routing, communication lines (PBX ports) need to pass direct inward
dial (DID) information in DTMF format to FaxFinder when the FaxFinder port goes off hook to answer a call.
■ A workstation for initial FaxFinder configuration
Depending on your network, you may need to connect FaxFinder directly to the workstation to complete
initial network setup. You will need to identify and possibly change the workstation’s current IP. If using a
laptop, note that an active WiFi connection may interfere with the Ethernet connection to FaxFinder.
■ Internet Browser
Use a current version of your Internet browser. Some FaxFinder Web Management pages do not render
correctly on outdated browsers.
■ Static IP address
FaxFinder does not support automatically assigned IP addresses via DHCP. FaxFinder is set from the factory
with an IP address of 192.168.2.1 (netmask 255.255.255.000).
■ Ethernet and RJ-45 Cable
You need to know if your Ethernet equipment has a simple traditional switch or hub, a managed V-LAN
switch that is IP address aware (and will block traffic that is not from its configured subnet), or a port on a
network enabled device (such as a PBX or router) with controls that are similar to a managed switch.
14
FaxFinder® Fax Server FF240, FF440, FF840 Administrator Guide
PRODUCT OVERVIEW
■ FaxFinder's Ethernet interface is full duplex, auto negotiating 10/100/1000 Mb and auto polarity
sensing. Auto polarity allows you to use a traditional straight through or cross-over, Ethernet RJ45 cable.
■ FaxFinder does not support POE (Power over Ethernet). You may need to disable POE features on
the Ethernet port that you connect to the FaxFinder.
Fax Routing Overview
Inbound Routing
Depending on your network configuration, FaxFinder can route incoming faxes to a network printer, network
share, and through your mail server to any individual user. FaxFinder can deliver incoming faxes as email
attachments to any user on your mail system, whether local, remote, or mobile.
Outbound Routing
You can configure FaxFinder so that users can send faxes through a T.37 email, the FaxFinder Fax Client, a web
browser, or a Web API. Fax Client Software, installed on a user's Windows computer, also allows the user to send
faxes through the print function of any software.
FaxFinder® Fax Server FF240, FF440, FF840 Administrator Guide
15
PRODUCT OVERVIEW
Static or Dynamic Delivery
The source and type of communication lines that connect to FaxFinder dictate if the inbound fax routing method is
set for dynamic or static delivery. Dynamic delivery is based on the number dialed by the party sending the fax.
Static delivery is based on which communication line/FaxFinder port the inbound fax uses.
Although FaxFinder ports can be connected to an ordinary phone line (POTS line), they are often connected to a
PBX extension/station port. FaxFinder can deliver incoming faxes as email messages to any user on your network.
Use this feature when your PBX can route multiple receiving numbers to a single station port. A PBX may
determine which number was dialed by the originator, for example, through an IP enabled PBX communicating
directly with an IP based PSTN service or other IP enabled communication equipment.
PBX Call Routing
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
PBX sends a call to the FaxFinder by ringing the extension connected to the FaxFinder port.
FaxFinder picks up (goes off hook).
The PBX transmits a string of DTMF digits to the extension. Usually this is the last x number of digits
dialed by the calling side.
FaxFinder port answers as a fax machine and receives the incoming fax.
When the fax transmission completes, FaxFinder uses the DID information to determine delivery options.
FaxFinder does this by reading the recipient inbound routing table in the FaxFinder.
When the PBX provides call routing information, it does not matter which FaxFinder port (line) receives the call.
The fax will be routed to all the delivery options associated with the DID number (recipient extension) defined in
the Recipient routing table.
If the PBX/analog line cannot provide DID call routing, incoming faxes will be routed solely on the delivery options
associated with specific FaxFinder port (line) that the call was received on. You can define multiple delivery options
for each physical line/port.

Modem Fields
Use the following fields to configure the modem:
Field
Description
Modem
The internal modem number, which is based on the FaxFinder model (1-2 for the FF240, 1-4
for the FF440 and 1-8 for the FF840) or Expansion Module (8 or 16 additional modems).
Country Code
Use this to set the modem's Country Profile Code. For correct operation, use the country code
for country where you are using the FaxFinder.
Answer On
If you set Routing to POTS Line, enter how many times the line should ring before the modem
answers it. If this is 2, the modem will pick up the line after it detects two ring sequences. If
you set Routing to DTMF Digits or a PBX mode code, the modem ignores this value. PBX mode
code and DTMF Digits routing always pick up after one ring sequence.
FaxFinder® Fax Server FF240, FF440, FF840 Administrator Guide

BASIC FAXFINDER CONFIGURATION
Field
Description
Routing
For inbound fax calls from the PSTN, this setting determines whether the modem checks the
line for DID routing information in the form of DTMF digits. This setting directly effects how
other Inbound Routing fields should be configured.
Note: For DTMF Digits or PBX Mode Code routing, the modem listens up to 15
seconds for all expected DID routing information. If it detects only a portion or none of
the expected digits after 15 seconds the modem will declare a timeout and proceed to
make fax answer tones. After a fax is received, it will be delivered as if POTS Line is the
selected routing technique.
Select from the following options:
POTS Line
With this option, the modem does not look for DID routing information from
the line/PBX. When the modem receives a fax, FaxFinder delivers it based on
options defined for this line number in the Lines section of the Inbound
Routing page.
DTMF Digits
With this option, the modem listens for DID routing information from the
PBX line. DID information must be a string of DTMF digits. FaxFinder makes
fax answer tones after it hears the expected number of DID digits (Max
Extension Digits). After the modem receives a fax, FaxFinder tries to match
the DID number it heard with entries in the Recipients table to determine
delivery options.
___Mode Code ___ represents the specific PBX equipment that you have. PBX Mode Code is
similar to DTMF Digits, except the DTMF digits from the PBX also contain
information that FaxFinder doesn't use. FaxFinder needs to know the
incoming mode code format to identify and extract the DID extension
number imbedded within. FaxFinder includes PBX Mode Codes for some
device manufacturers. If the codes for your device are not included, select
User Defined and add the code to the Routing Definition field.

BASIC FAXFINDER CONFIGURATION
Field
Description
Routing Definition
If you selected a vendor pre-defined routing code, it displays in this field. If you selected User
Defined for Routing, enter your own formula/definition in this field. Routing Definition
identifies code elements sent by the PBX so that FaxFinder can mask information it doesn't
need and identify the extension number it does need.
Key
■ n is the variable number for each definition
■ For Call Type, Calling Number, and Internal Code, replace n with
the number of digits that you want masked or ignored.
■ For Extension digits, replace n with the number of extension digits
used to route inbound faxes to recipients. If you are using a
predefined mode code that uses $x? as the Extension Digits
variable, use the Max DTMF Digits field to define the number of
DID extension digits.
Description
Explains the current mode code, if any, in the Routing Definition field.
Max Baud Rate
Select the maximum connection (baud) rate that allowed on the modem. Default is 14400.
Dial Prefix
This is a global setting applied to all outbound calls made from this modem, for example, 9 to
dial an outside line. Any value entered here is automatically the first number dialed for all
outbound faxes, regardless of how a fax is submitted.
Init String
Use this field to define additional AT modem commends needed for your faxing environment.
AT commands entered here will be issued to this modem before every call on this port,
inbound or outbound.
Fax ID
This value appears in the fax page header. Typically, it is the fax number or the company
name, so that recipients can identify each page with the sender's name or number. For Fax ID
regulations, consult the FCC website.
Max Extension
Digits
Used when Routing is set to DTMF Digits or a PBX mode code. Enter a value that matches the
number of digits to be passed by the line/PBX to the FaxFinder modem port. The supported
range length of a DTMF string is from 1 to 15 digits.
Fax Direction
Specify if this modem is for inbound faxes only, outbound faxes only, or both. This setting
should match the setting of the analog line/equipment connected to this port. If the modem
is set to outbound, but the PBX/Telco line connected to it is set to inbound, FaxFinder will not
answer inbound calls.
Error Correction
Select On to use T.30 error correction with this modem or Off to disable it. Default is On.
Smart Dial
Select On to enable Smart Dial or Off to disable it. When Smart Dial is enabled, the modem
waits to detect a dial tone before dialing.

Field
Description
Tone Dial
Select On for tone dialing or Off for pulse dialing. Default is On.
Fax Debugging
If a communication error occurs when FaxFinder attempts to send or receive a fax, FaxFinder
creates a modem log file. This is available through the FaxFinder Web Management Log
menu. When you enable Fax Debugging, the log file provides more details about the fax call.
Select On if you want to log fax debugging information or Off if you do not.
Note: Multi-Tech recommends that you turn this on as needed to collect data for
troubleshooting and turn it off when you have the more detailed log file.
Routing Inbound Faxes
Select how you want inbound faxes routed:
■ Global Routing sends a copy of every incoming fax to the defined fax destination as well as to destinations
in the Lines or Recipients table.
■ Line Routing routes faxes for POTS lines/modems. Also defines a default fax destination when the incoming
fax does not include a valid recipient's extension.
■ Recipient Routing is based on the extension number. It requires that the Fax Configuration routing
parameter be set to DTMF Digits or a PBX Mode Code. This routing type requires the PBX/phone line to
provide DID extension information in the form of DTMF digits. FaxFinder matches the DID extension from
the PBX with the Recipients table to determine delivery options
You can define multiple fax destinations. Faxes can be delivered via email, sent to a printer, or written to a
network or SFTP share. You can also send incoming faxes directly to Trash.

MANAGING USERS, CONTACTS, AND RECIPIENTS
Managing Users, Contacts, and Recipients
Basic Configuration provides steps for adding users, recipients, and global contacts individually. This section details
importing and managing multiple users, recipients, and both global and personal contacts. It includes using global
and personal contact groups.
Note: If using Active Directory for user information, refer to the Active Directory section for help adding users.
Users
Importing Users
User CSV Import Format Notes
On the Users page, you can use a CSV file to import just users, just contacts, or a combined file with both user and
contact records. The first comma-delimited value of each row indicates if the line is a user record or contact
record, so both user and contact types can be in the same CSV file.
■ Your file must conform to the order and format for each record type.
■ If any of your data has apostrophes, commas, or quote marks, enclose the data in double quotes.
■ Header rows are optional. A header row is any row that starts with Type. If you export data from a
FaxFinder, the CSV file will include header information in the first row.
Note: Only Administrators can import through the User page.
Warning: If you import a record that matches the name of existing record, FaxFinder overwrites the existing
information.

Updating Software
Updating FaxFinder Software
To administer FaxFinder, the browser accesses the FaxFinder server through HTTPS (default port is TCP 443). When
you press Update to update firmware, the browser switches to HTTP port 80 to upload the new firmware file. The
browser then switches back to HTTPS.
The update process takes at least six minutes. Do not power off the FaxFinder during the update.
■ While the software is uploading, the browser shows Updating Please Wait and the FaxFinder's Status
LED flashes on/off normally.
■ When the browser switches back to HTTPS, the browser shows Rebooting Please Wait and the Status
LED is solid for about minute and then flashes normally.
■ When the process completes, the browser shows the login page.
To check for updates:

3.
Click System Configuration > Software Update.
Click Default to ensure the Update Source field is set for the factory URL.
Click Check for Updates. FaxFinder checks the designated site for a newer software version. If an update
is available, an Upgrade button and README link appear.
4. Click Upgrade to download and install the update. Click Yes to upgrade and reboot automatically. Click
Cancel if you do not want to update at this time. The update process takes several minutes. Click
README to view information about the new version.
Warning: Do not power off FaxFinder during the update process.
Note: During the upgrade, the HTTPS port (TCP 443 by default) and TCP port 80 needs to be open to the
FaxFinder if there is a firewall or other security software blocking these ports.
The upgrade occasionally takes longer than expected. This may cause the browser to show a timeout when the
process tries to display the login screen. If this occurs, wait approximately one minute and then refresh your
browser.

Custom Cover Pages
FaxFinder uses PDF forms for cover pages. You can create PDF forms with Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat Pro.
FaxFinder completes the form with information specific to the fax and inserts cover page as the first fax page. To
do this, cover page field names must match the field names FaxFinder uses.
FaxFinder fills in text fields and ignores most formatting. For best results, make your form as simple as possible.
Send test faxes to verify that the formatting is correct. FaxFinder includes examples that you can use as a starting
point for designing new cover pages.
Tips
■ Verify that text fields are large enough to fit the information that you want to display. If text is too long for
the field, it will be truncated.
■ Choose a standard font and keep the font size in the 10-12 pt range.

FaxFinder could not contact your name server during transmission. Contact FaxFinder using secure shell and try to
ping the name server.
ssh user@ip
user: admin
password: admin
# ping yyy.yyy.y.y (where y is the name server address)
If the name server ping fails, determine why it failed:
■ The name server may be on a different subnet.
■ The default gateway may be set incorrectly.
If the name server ping succeeds, try to ping the mail server using its domain name.
# ping mail.ourcompany.com
■ If you can successfully ping the mail server by its IP address, but cannot ping it via its domain name,
then the name server is not functioning correctly.
■ If the mail server cannot be pinged by either its domain name or its IP address, the mail server may not
be running or contacted by FaxFinder. See Mail Server Not Running.
Mail Server Not Running
The mail server is not running or cannot be contacted from the FaxFinder unit. To verify that the mail server is
running, use your email software to send an email to yourself.
■ If you cannot send an email to yourself, the mail server is not running. Troubleshoot the mail server.
FaxFinder® Fax Server FF240, FF440, FF840 Administrator Guide
75
TROUBLESHOOTING
■ If you can send an email to yourself, the problem is between your mail server and the FaxFinder unit.
Contact Multi-Tech Technical Support.
Client PC can't Connect to Mail Server
If the client PC running the mail software cannot connect to the mail server, troubleshoot the mail server.
Incorrect Administrator Address
The administrator's email address may be missing or incorrect. Check the administrator's email address through
the User page.
Mail Server Does Not Support SMTP
FaxFinder requires SMTP support. To verify if the mail server supports SMTP:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Use secure shell to contact the FaxFinder either at its IP address or name (if a name server is present).
Specify the SMTP Port Number. The standard port number is 25, but you can configure this number
through System Configuration > SMTP.
Use Telnet (IP address: port) to get to the SMTP server. The mail server should return a Welcome
message.
Enter EHLO. The mail server should list supported protocols and other information.
If the mail server does not respond to the welcome message or the EHLO, either it does not support SMTP or the
port number is wrong. The port number specified in the System Configuration > SMTP must match the port
number used in Telnet.
Discrepancy between FaxFinder's SMTP settings and Mail Server's User ID and Password
Requirements
Some mail servers reject authentication if a user ID and password are not provided. Other mail servers reject
authentication if a User ID and password are provided.
1.
2.
Confirm your mail server's user ID and password requirements.
Verify that FaxFinder's System Configuration > SMTP settings are correct for your mail server. Either enter
the SMTP user ID and password or leave these fields blank.
What if FaxFinder doesn't answer a fax call?
During a test call, check the Status & Logs > Fax Status page. If you do not see the Waiting for Ring state change to
the Waiting for Connect State and you do not hear modem dialup/negotiation tones:
1.
2.
3.
Situate yourself where you can see the FaxFinder while using a phone on a regular POTS line.
Use the POTS phone to dial one of the FaxFinder phone numbers.
As the call completes, listen for fax tones and look for the Waiting for Connect message in Status & Logs >
Fax Status.
Sometimes it is possible to see activity in the LED indicators, but the flash is often too brief to notice. Listening for
the fax tones is the best method for troubleshooting.
Where can I Find the SMTP Error Code List?
You can look up these SMTP error codes on the Internet Engineering Task Force RFC repository at ietf.org.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Dealing with a Failed Fax Report
Occasionally, FaxFinder sends emails about faxes that failed partially or entirely. Some or all of the faxed pages
may not be readable. FaxFinder-generated emails of failed faxes include a modem log file with a name like
modem0modem1_date-time.txt.
The modem log file contains information about the communication between the sending modem and the
FaxFinder's receiving modem. This information may help prevent future errors.
When analyzing the modem log files from failed faxes, consider:
■ Is this failure is a one-time event or is it part of a larger pattern?
■ If it is a one-time event, it is probably unimportant. If it is part of a larger pattern, modem log files help
determine what kind of a pattern is involved.
■ Are many failures coming from a particular fax machine or from a particular brand or model of fax machine?
If so, then check the Multi-Tech web site for applicable modem firmware updates to the FaxFinder.
■ Have there been recent changes to the phone system or the room where the equipment is located? Verify
that phone lines are connected securely.
■ Have phone lines recently been changed or re-routed? Damaged or noisy phone lines can cause fax failures.
Possible Solutions
■ Lower the incoming baud rate for received faxes.
■ Check Multi-Tech web site for newer modem firmware for FaxFinder and, if necessary, upgrade the
FaxFinder.
■ Contact Multi-Tech Technical Support.

T.37 ADVANCED USAGE
T.37 Advanced Usage
For individual faxes, use these commands to override settings entered in the administrator or user web interface.
Many options for using email to fax (T.37) follow the Request For Comment (RFC) standards provided by the IETF.
Some of these options are briefly described here. For more in-depth descriptions, refer to the IETF website
(www.ietf.org). To use T.37 to send faxes, enter one or more options in the format option=value. To use multiple
options, divide them with a forward slash (/). Enter options text exactly as shown to trigger the event. Values are
the variables allowed by the command. .
Options
FAX=number
■ Number is the fax number to dial.
■ Required, all other settings are optional.
Example: FAX=555-1234@example.test
COVER-PAGE-ENABLED=true|false
Example: FAX=5551234/COVER-PAGE-ENABLED=false@example.test
COVER-PAGE-NAME=name
Name is the FaxFinder cover page filename.
Example: FAX=5551234/COVER-PAGE-NAME=mts_template2.pdf@example.test

commands overrides the settings on the T.37 configuration page.
Parameters
Send a fax to the phone number 111-555-1234 with a cover page noting the recipient as "John Smith" at the
company "Multi-Tech".
String of T.37 options:
FAX=111-555-1234/COVER-PAGE-ENABLED=true/ATTN=John Smith/ORG=Multi-Tech@example.test
Relaying
To send faxes through an MTA such as mail.multitech.com, then mail.multitech.com needs to be configured to
forward mail to the FaxFinder for a domain that FaxFinder will accept mail for.
For most mail servers, if the email's domain can be successfully resolved, the mail server will forward mail to that
destination without any extra configuration.
