Hello everyone :-)
Firstly, thank you everyone for subscribing to this mailing list. I
truly hope that it becomes a useful discussion forum for all of us in
As I indicated earlier, I have now closed down the fully-automated
subscription to this mailing list (future subscriptions are possible by
list-admin approval only). If you know someone who is in the soft-modem
or fax or related development endeavors, who can talk protocol and who
is willing to listen to and discuss whatever it is that comes along in
our own efforts, then please do invite them to subscribe, introduce them
to this list, and I'll approve their subscription.
The list archives for this list are public, however, for the benefit of
those who typically like to lurk... or just read what we talk about in here.
I'm going to briefly introduce everyone that is now subscribed to this
list. Please do feel free to correct me and/or elaborate.
And, of course, please do feel free to begin posting. :-)
Most of you know me. My name is Lee Howard, and I have worked with
HylaFAX as a developer for possibly seven years now. I now run my own
development fork for HylaFAX (commonly called HylaFAX+) at sourceforge.
I have enjoyed working with Steve Underwood to implement a T.31
interface to the fax DSPs in his spandsp library, and I have used that
T.31 interface to develop IAXmodem, a soft faxmodem primarily used to
interface Asterisk-like PBXes with direct PSTN connections to
HylaFAX-like DTEs. I am located in Washington state, USA.
Steve Underwood is subscribed here. Steve is the author of spandsp - a
software DSP library with which most of us here are surely very
familiar. He also serves as a sometimes developer for Callweaver
(previously OpenPBX, an Asterisk fork), putting T.38 support into that
PBX. He maintains two popular PBX applications: txfax and rxfax which,
with the spandsp library, implement T.30 protocol to send or receive
faxes directly from the PBX. Steve is located in Hong Kong.
Craig Southeren is subscribed. Craig is a co-founder and continuing
leader of the OPAL/OpenH323 and Woomera projects. (See his bio on
http://www.cluecon.com/speakers.html.) When not speaking at a
conference elsewhere, he appears to reside near Sydney, Australia.
Vyacheslav Frolov is subscribed. Vyacheslav has been a valued
contributor to HylaFAX over the years. He authored t38modem - a T.38
software modem using OpenH323 that interfaces with the DTE via a T.31
interface. Recently he ported t38modem to the new OPAL code base, and
thus t38modem now supports SIP as well as H.323 - which should prove to
be a boon to its exposure. I think that Vyacheslav is located in
Steven Meyer is subscribed. I was recently introduced to Steven due to
some social networking at Cluecon 07. Steven was one of the core
developers working on the low level fax engine for Delrina's popular
Winfax program. I suspect that Steven is located on Earth somewhere. :-)
