That magic sauce does not exist. As someone who has put major time into
attempting it, my suggest is to run far far away from faxing over voip. You
can get it to mostly work in some scenarios, but I would not recommend it
to anyone. Ever. Under any circumstances.

Faxing only works on the legacy PSTN. Full stop. Either outsource to a fax
provider or get a copper line. Save your own sanity. Seriously, I can't
overstate this enough. Faxing should die a violent death.
