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 touch Settings.


Touch Poll to Receive.


Enter the fax number of the other fax machine.


Touch Start Fax.
