Description : software modem with IAX2 connectivity
IAXmodem is a software modem written in C that uses an IAX channel (commonly
provided by an Asterisk PBX system) instead of a traditional phone line and
uses a DSP library instead of DSP hardware chipsets.
IAXmodem was originally conceived to function as a fax modem usable with
HylaFAX, and it does that well. However IAXmodem also has been known to
function with mgetty+sendfax and efax.
Note that iaxmodem includes modified versions of libiax2 and spandsp, both
libraries being GPL-licensed and statically linked into the iaxmodem binary.
The packaged version of the libraries cannot be used, either because they're
not current enough (as in "CVS HEAD 2 hours ago") or because of the
modifications applied for iaxmodem.
I am currently finishing up the packaging and feeding my patches to make
iaxmodem a daemon upstream.
