The preceding recipe described the process of sending a fax. This recipe will describe the process of receiving a fax.
In its simplest format, receiving a fax requires only that you route an incoming call to an extension that then executes the

Execute these steps to do a simple fax transmission and reception:
Execute this command:
originate loopback/9178 &txfax(/tmp/txfax-sample.tiff)
Watch the console and eventually the fax transmission should successfully finish.
