Yes,
It is the phone number assigned to the phone line you plugged into the fax machine. You Fax machine is basically a Modem listening to the phone line. Someone dials and if they are sending a fax, the two machine's make squealing noises called a "handsake" then connect sends data.
It is then stored or printed or both.

If you pick up the phone while the two fax machines are connecting.
You will most likely disconnect the data transfer and get an ear full.

Hope this helps!

Epson Stylus CX5700f I have just setup fax. I am having problems receiving faxes and telephone calls


You need to do two more steps.

1. contact the phone company about distitive ring. This will have a different ring for incoming faxes.
2. set the fax up for distitive ring once the phone company sets you up. This will cause the fax only to answer when another fax is calling, due to the distictive ring set up.

Can I use my phone number as my fax number?


Yes. Use a splitter. If fax has fax switch built in then fax calls should go to fax only and not phone. A fax switch can be fitted separately.
