Title : Guideline of optional services for Internet FAX Gateway
Author(s) : K. Mimura, et al.
Filename : draft-ietf-fax-gateway-options-08.txt
Pages : 9
Date : 2005-2-2
To allow connectivity between the general switched telephone network
facsimile service (GSTN fax) and the e-mail based Internet Fax
service (i-fax) an "Internet FAX Gateway" is required. This document
provides guidelines for the optional functionality of Internet FAX
Gateways. In this context, an "offramp gateway" provides facsimile
data transmission from i-fax to GSTN fax; viceversa an "onramp
gateway" provides data transmission form GSTN fax to i-fax. The
recommendations in this document apply to the integrated service
including Internet Fax terminals, computers with i-fax software on
the Internet, and GSTN Fax terminals on the GSTN.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
