FaxBack now offers the ability to test the new fax integration feature in V.41 by connecting to our hosted server in the cloud. Download our netsapiens Integration Datasheet. View our Step by Step Guide to understand the process of getting your evaluation setup from start to finish.
The integration between FaxBack and netsapiens gives providers complete management of fax accounts and fax numbers or DIDs directly within the netsapiens environment. Providers can offer their customers very reliable and secure fax connections to Fax Machines/MFPs with HTTPS-based Fax ATAs that seamlessly integrate into their fax solution.
Fax features include email and web browser clients along with Fax Machines/MFPs. In addition, providers can maintain their Fax DIDs and transparently manage them within netsapiens along with all their voice DIDs.
Yes, here it is. Hope this helps you visualize things.
FaxBack has made getting started with an evaluation of the new integration extremely quick and easy. Providers will be given a cloud FaxBack account that will allow for complete use of all features without having to install any services/software locally or within their own network infrastructure.
Providers who do want to use their own fax numbers and DIDs can easily do so by installing an HTTPS Fax Port Server that connects to their FaxBack Cloud account.

The simple steps are as follows:
To configure netsapiens V.41 to connect to your account on FaxBack’s Cloud or to your locally installed NET SatisFAXtion Fax Solution (NSX version only), follow the steps below. For full details, refer to the “How to setup FaxBack Fax integration” Knowledge Base article located at netsapiens Client Services Center. Please contact netsapiens for further assistance with these settings and configuration.
CLOUD: If you are using FaxBack’s Cloud, you will have been supplied a url and credentials (username and password) from FaxBack. Enter those as described below.
PREMISE: If you are using a premise installation of NET SatisFAXtion (NSX version only) you will need to work with FaxBack to know what your url and username/password are as they will be created during your specific installation.
Edit the following entries the file located at /etc/netsapiens/api_config.php
These are set in admin UI and configurable per domain, user and scope as normal.
PORTAL_FAX_VENDOR - Set to "faxback" to indicate the vendor of preference.
PORTAL_MENU_SHOW_FAX - User level menu setting to show "Fax" icon within specific menus.
NOTE: If you are using FaxBack’s Cloud telephony, you do NOT need to change the following setting. This only applies if you are using your own telephony for fax and have a premise FaxBack HTTPS Port Server installed, follow the additional step.
PORTAL_FAX_SIP_TRUNK - Set to the name of the SIP trunk configured to route SIP traffic to and from your locally installed FaxBack HTTPS Port Server. Example "10.0.0.40" to match the SIP trunk created in the next step.
SIP Trunk for inbound and outbound calls

For calls to move from your inbound carrier to FaxBack's HTTPS Port Server you will need to add a SIP trunk. An example to 10.0.0.40 is included (see example_faxback_trunk.csv). You will need to edit this file based on the information when you install and configure the FaxBack HTTPS Port Server.

Please contact netsapiens for further assistance with these settings and configuration.
