Many countries and regions require outgoing faxes to contain the following information in a margin at the top or bottom of each transmitted page, or on the first page of the transmission: fax name (identification of the business, other entity, or individual sending the message) and fax number (telephone number of the sending fax machine, business, other entity, or individual).
To enter your fax setup information, use the printer control panel, or use your browser to access the Embedded Web Server, and then open the Settings menu.
Note: If you do not have a TCP/IP environment, then you must use the printer control panel to enter your fax setup information.
Using the printer control panel for fax setup
When the printer is turned on for the first time, a series of start‑up screens appear. If the printer has fax capabilities, then the Fax Name or Station Name and Fax Number or Station Number screens appear:
When Fax Name or Station Name appears, type the name to be printed on all outgoing faxes, and then press .
When Fax Number or Station Number appears, enter the printer fax number, and then press .
Using the Embedded Web Server for fax setup
Open a Web browser, and then type the printer IP address in the address field.
- View the printer IP address in the TCP/IP section in the Network/Ports menu. The IP address appears as four sets of numbers separated by periods, such as 126.96.36.199.
- If you are using a proxy server, then temporarily disable it to load the Web page correctly.
Click Settings > Fax Settings > Analog Fax Setup.
In the Fax Settings menu, type the name to be printed on all outgoing faxes in the Fax Name or Station Name field.
In the Fax Number or Station Number field, enter the printer fax number.
