Poll to receive a fax

Polling allows the printer to ask another fax machine to send a fax that it has in its
queue. When you use the Poll to Receive feature, the printer calls the designated fax
machine and requests the fax from it. The designated fax machine must be set for
polling and have a fax ready to send.

NOTE: The printer does not support polling pass codes. Polling pass codes are
a security feature that require the receiving fax machine to provide a pass code to
the printer it is polling in order to receive the fax. Make sure the printer you are
polling does not have a pass code set up (or has not changed the default pass
code) or the printer cannot receive the fax.

To set up poll to receive a fax from the printer control panel

Touch Fax, and then select Fax Settings or Other Methods.


Touch Poll to Receive.


Enter the fax number of the other fax machine.


Touch Start Fax.
