Receive a fax manually

When you are on the phone, the person you are speaking with can send you a fax
while you are still connected. This is referred to as manual faxing. Use the instructions
in this section to receive a manual fax.
You can receive faxes manually from a phone that is:

Directly connected to the HP All-in-One (on the 2-EXT port)

On the same phone line, but not directly connected to the HP All-in-One


In some countries/regions that use serial-type phone systems, the

phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One might have an additional wall
plug attached to it. This enables you to connect other telecom devices to
the wall jack where you plug in the HP All-in-One.
