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
recommendations for the 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 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.

This document is a product of the Internet Fax Working Group of the IETF.
