Dear all,

I looked all over the web to an option to convert RTP stream of a passthrough FAX to a readable file, but i could not find it.

I have an RTP Stream captured that i would like to convert to a TIFF Image of the faxed file.

Can you help me with a way to do it ?

Thank you.

PS : I have Wireshark2 and a pcapng dump from which i extracted the G711a rtpdump.

What you need is:

  • in Wireshark: Telephony -> RTP -> Stream Analysis -> Save -> Forward stream audio

  • using Audacity or another audio editor/converter: change the internal format of the audio file from .au to .wav

  • using this project: convert the .wav contents into the .tiff picture.
