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; vice versa, an "onramp
gateway" provides data transmission from 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.
This document supplements the recommendation for minimal features of
an Internet Fax Gateway. In particular, it covers techniques for
dropping duplicated fax messages, automatic fax re-transmission,
error, return notice, and log handling, and possible authorization
methods by DTMF (Dual Tone Multi-Frequency) for onramp gateways.
