Fax forword ricoh mp171

Print documents received and forward to a specified end receiver. This is useful if, for example, you are visiting another office and would like a copy of your documents to be sent to that office.
You can also specify a "folder" as the forwarding destination.
  • To use this function, set [Forwarding] under [Administrator Tools] to [On].
  • The Forwarding function does not forward documents received with Memory Lock.
  • You can select end receivers only from among destinations programmed in the Address Book. You cannot specify programmed transfer stations as end receivers.
A fax number, e-mail address, IP-Fax destination, and folder can be set as the forwarding destination.
When you wish to change the end receivers depending on the senders, specify the end receivers by the senders, at "Program Special Sender". Documents not received from specified senders are sent to the destination specified in this function. For details about programming special sender, see "Program Special Sender".
You can set whether or not to print the forwarded documents on this machine in "Parameter Setting" (switch 11, bit 6). See "Parameter Settings".
Deleting a destination specified as a forward destination from the destination list causes the settings of the forward destination to be deleted, so they must be registered again. When a destination is changed, a document is transmitted to the new destination. If there is no destination of the specified type, you can set which destination to be used as an alternative destination in "Parameter Setting" (switch 32, bit 0). See "Parameter Settings".
You can program one of the User Function keys with operations for this function. See "General Settings/Adjust".
If you have specified a folder for forwarding, you can specify the file format used for forwarding in "Parameter Setting" (switch 21, bit 3). See "Parameter Settings".
User Parameters (switch 37, bit 4) on the Fax Features menu allows you to include the sender's name in the names of files sent to folders. However, garbling of the file name and data loss can result if the receiver's operating system cannot accept certain characters in file names. To prevent this, use User Parameters (switch 37, bit 5) to limit the file names to plain characters only. If you limit file names to plain characters only but errors still occur, disable display of the sender's name in the file name of documents forwarded to folders. For details, see "Parameter Settings".
Using the parameter setting (switches 38 and 39), you can specify the maximum number of resends that the machine attempts if it fails to forward a fax (including faxes from special senders) to a folder destination, and the interval between the resend attempts.

I dont know who to change the phone number on the out going cover page so the receiver has a fax number to send back papers sent

If you don't have a User's Guide, go to the Brother web site and download it. But as a quick fix, you can access the menu function and navigate to settings and find the outgoing fax number place. Then you can change the number and name as you desire.

Can send but not receive faxes

No identification is not the problem. It sounds like you have it set to "manual receive" rather than "auto receive"
