Using Remote Faxes

Even if you have a multifunction printer without the ability to fax, you can use the printer to send and receive faxes via another multifunction printer with fax functionality if both printers are on the same network. In this case, the printer with fax functionality and the printer without fax functionality can be likened to a server machine and client machine, respectively. Sharing fax functionality and communication lines reduces introduction costs and offers an efficient use of fax functions.
