About Server Fax
If your machine supports the Scan service, installing the Server Fax Kit (optional)
allows you to use the Fax service of a Server Fax server.
When your machine does not support the Fax service and supports the Server Fax
service only, the Server Fax service will be enabled automatically.
When your machine supports both the Fax and Server Fax services, manually switch
to the Server Fax service in the System Administration mode.
With this Server Fax service, you can transfer image data received by the machine to
the Server Fax server and can transfer image data received by the Server Fax server
to the machine via a network based on the settings you made.
The Server Fax service supports the SMB, FTP, and SMTP protocols.
For information on how to connect the machine to a network and how to set the network environment,
refer to the Administrator Guide, and the manual included in the Driver CD Kit.
