Java 5 (or 1.5 as its sometimes referred to).

AsterFax requires a Java 5 runtime and must be installed on the same machine as Asterisk.. If you don't already have Java 5 start by downloading and installing an appropriate Java Runtime Environment (JRE).
You can get Java 5 runtime here .
Select the option JRE 5.0 Update <n>

Download the file:
chmod the file:
chmod u+x the_file_you_downloaded

exexute the file

Add the new directory in your path
(this is usually something like /usr/java/jre1.x.x/bin)

Once installed make certain that it runs and that you have the correct version by typing the following at a command prompt:
java -version
It should display a message similar to the following:
java version "1.5.0-rc"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0-rc-b63)

If an older version (1.4 or earlier) is reported then you have either installed the wrong version of java or you have an old version still in your path.
You can run the 'which' command to find out where java is being loaded from:
which java

AsterFax™ is a trade mark of Asterisk I.T..
I'm not a great believer in Trade Marking Open Source software but unfortunately someone has been running a scam to redirect traffic to a bogus AsterFax web site. As such I've trade marked AsterFax's name to provide protection from such people.
