TSI Routing Example

This example shows how to set up Incoming Fax Routing with TSI so that Faximum will send you email notification of the arrival of a fax and will also route the fax to your inbox.

What is a TSI?
The TSI string is the identification string of the sending fax machine that is transmitted along with the fax. WHile it is supposed to be the phone number of the sending fax machine, it is not always properly configured when fax machines are installed.

If you are using TSI Registration, the name of the TSI Registration must be the exact sequence of numbers used by the calling FAX machine for its Transmitting Subscriber Identification (TSI) number. This may or may not be the actual fax number of the machine. The most reliable way to verify the TSI number is to use the Fax Browser window and look at the Sender # associated with a fax from that FAX machine. The Sender # is the TSI number.

To use Incoming Fax Routing with TSI strings you first define an action (what you want to happen) and then associate the action with a particular TSI string.

Define an Action
  1. Choose Incoming Fax Routing from the Admin pulldown menu (if you have not done so already). The Route Incoming Fax dialog appears.
  2. Look at the Routing menu in the upper left hand corner of the window. If Action is not already selected, select it now.
  3. Choose Add and type in the name "email and route".
  4. Choose OK.
  5. Fill in the following fields in the Data area:
  6. Choose Apply Edits.

You have just defined an action named "email and route". Now let's define a bar code value and associate it with the action.

Next, see Define a TSI String to use the Action.
