New in version 3.3.1 (October 2021)

  • In the Fax Voip FSP Control Panel, Dialing Rules (Microsoft Telephony) page added. On this page you can configure dialing rules (TAPI) and see how fax number in canonical format will be translated into dialing string and how it will be displayed in Windows Fax and Scan software. In user manual, added instructions on how to configure dialing rules (Dialing Rules Overview chapter).
  • When using Mail To Fax function and Mail to Fax Rules, added possibility to translate fax number to non-canonical format before creating a fax job, including using the dialing rules (TAPI) specified in the Phone and Modem options in Windows Control Panel.
  • When using Mail To Fax function and Mail to Fax Rules, added possibility to add prefix before fax number. In particular, this can be used to route faxes from different e-mail users via different SIP accounts. The specified prefix can be then removed when applying the Outgoing VOIP Call Routing rules (If Number starts with and Remove digits... options).
  • When using Remove digits option in the Outgoing VOIP Call Routing rules, you now can remove not only digits, but also any other characters at the beginning of the number.
  • Fixed some issues with DNS SRV lookup, in particular when using a proxy. Critical with some providers, such as Deutsche Telekom (tel.t-online.de), that no longer use the DNS A record to resolve the IP address of the SIP server. Sometimes this can be used to automatically detect the correct port number on which the SIP server is listening.
  • In the Fax Voip FSP Control Panel, added commands to create a copy of the selected routing rule or SIP Registration entry. Applied to SIP Registrations, Outgoing VOIP Call Routing, Incoming VOIP Call Routing, Incoming Fax Routing Methods (Route through e-mail, Store in a folder, Print), Outgoing Fax Routing Methods (E-mail Delivery Receipts, Store in a folder, Print) and Mail to Fax Rules. Can be useful when creating a large number of similar rules or SIP Registration entries.
  • In the Fax Voip FSP Control Panel, added commands to enable or disable selected rule(s). Applied to Incoming Fax Routing Methods (Route through e-mail, Store in a folder, Print) and Outgoing Fax Routing Methods (E-mail Delivery Receipts, Store in a folder, Print).

  • Possibility to configure Use device Transmitting Subscriber ID (TSID) option (Windows Fax Service software) using Reinstall Fax Voip FSP Services command in the Fax Voip FSP Control Panel.
  • Some other improvements.
