I need to connect my fax whit the magicjack

A voice over Internet protocol device, magicJack allows you to make and receive telephone calls from your computer using a USB device. While magicJack does not officially support sending and receiving faxes, you can connect a regular fax machine to the magicJack device to send and receive faxes.
Attach the magicJack device to a USB port on your computer.
Connect the phone wire to the port at the end of the magicJack device.
Connect the other end of the phone wire to the "Input" jack on your fax machine.
Turn off error correction on your fax machine, and set your fax machine to the lowest possible transmission speed. Consult your fax machine's user guide if you do not know how to turn off the error correction or lower the transmission speed on your fax machine.
Send a fax to your magicJack phone number to receive a fax. You can find your magicJack phone number at the top of the magicJack splash screen that will display on your computer after inserting the magicJack device.
Send a fax from your magicJack by loading the fax you want to send into your fax machine and pressing the "Send" button.

What does it mean when my Muratec Fax Machine says DHCP Server Did Not Respond and it will not send or receive documents?

DHCP is the way systems on a network get an address from the network. In a home environment, that's usually done by the router. Unless your fax machine is attempting to send faxes via the internet (rare), that isn't why your machine can't send or receive a fax. If you're talking about sending a fax from your computer, then not having an address is indeed the reason you can't send a fax from your computer.
You will need to see why your router isn't giving the fax machine an ip address. Is it connected to the router? Wireless? Wired?

How I can receive fax through computer with HP1312?

Hi a barati75

A fax transmission is an analogue communication that was possible on a computer with the old technology of Dial up Modems, which accessed the internet by dialling like a landline telephone. The Broadband Modems (or Modem/Routers) in widespread use today have an 'always on' internet connection and, therefore, no dialling is involved in internet access using them.

You can send a fax by dialling out on the All-in-one printer's telephone number pad. Receiving a fax automatically requires you to have the All-in-one printer's Transmission/Reception Settings set to 'Automatic'.

This fax setup requires the printer's fax cable to plugged directly into an empty Telephone Line Socket on the ADSL filter that plugs into your Telephone Wall Socket and has inputs for your Modem (or Modem/Router) and a Telephone line. If, as is common, your ADSL Filter only has a single Telephone Line Socket and you also require a telephone to be plugged into the same socket as well as the Fax Machine component of your printer, then a Telephone Line Socket Doubler must first be plugged into the Telephone Line Socket of the ADSL Filter which then receives the Fax Line into one socket and the Telephone Line into the other. Please note that every Telephone Socket in the building sharing the same circuit/telephone number must also have an ADSL filter between it and any telephonic device (Telephone/Fax Machine/Answering Machine/Stock Control linked EPOS (Electronic Point of Sale) System/Card Payment Processing Machine, etc.), in order to enable both Computer Internet Data and Telecommunications Data to share the same line without conflict.

Your question asks whether a fax can be received "through" the computer. The above description enables your printer to send and receive faxes 'independently' of the computer while simultaneously providing the computer with printing, scanning and copying functions. For faxes to be sent and received via the computer, software is required. The simplest and most efficient of which is Efax (Electronic Fax (available from and other similar software available from a variety of suppliers. This software enables the user to send any document or image stored on the computer by fax (without first having to print it) and to receive faxes, at any time, in the form of attachments to e-mails that the software opens, usually as a non-editable PDF or other similar secure Document Format. Faxing a physical document via Efax requires the user to scan the document and save it on the computer first, before sending it.

A combination of a Standalone Fax function setup using ADSL Filters and Socket Doublers + Efax gives the user optimum flexibility in sending and receiving faxes.

I hope this helps.

I'm trying to figure out how to scan a document and send it to email using an IKON (Canon) imagerunner C3220 copier? Is this possible?

The following steps will allow you to send and receive E-mail: 1. Make sure you have all of your TCP/IP information set up (IP address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, DNS Server (if one), Host Name, and Domain name of your Domain) before you begin.
2. Enter into the Network Settings and Select E-mail/I-Fax.
3. If you are setting this up for SMTP (Simple Mail Transport Protocol) to send E-mail and I-Fax, enter the IP address or Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of your mail server in the SMTP Server section. For example: Then enter the email address that will be the default sender in the SMTP Address field.
4. If you use POP3 and want to receive e- imageRUNNER mail and I-Faxes, fill in the IP address or FQDN of your POP3 server and the account added for the imageRUNNER-iR. The password is optional and needs to be entered if set on the e-mail account of the imageRUNNER-iR. Set the POP interval (how often the machine will log in and check for mail).
5. Reboot the device.
-If the SMTP mail server requires authentication for sending email, enter Encryption/Authentication login information (SMTP authentication via a username and password).
- For the models that do not support SMTP authentication, the administrator will need to set up a SMTP Relay.

Fax machines are sorta like printers, sorta like scanners, and sorta like dial up modems all wrapped into one expensive box.
1. First thing to make sure of is that you are hooked to a phone line. most fax machines have a phone handset that you can make calls from. Call someone and make sure that works. If So, you are able to connect to phone networks, and should have no trouble sending or receiving data. If you have a dead line or no sound, check the line and check the power. (its always the easy stuff that is overlooked, just check it and make sure).
2. If this fax machine has computer interface, (usb port or parallel cable port), see if you can scan with it. Drop a document into the scan area and see if the computer can scan an image from the scanner. If the scanner works, you can scan images into the fax machine to be sent to the fax number. (If your fax machine does not have a scan to computer feature, skip this.)
3. if your fax machine has a print from pc feature, try to print a document to it from your computer. If you can print, then the printer works, and you can receive faxes. (if your fax machine does not have a pc printing feature, skip this)
4. Here is how a typical fax machine works. You place the document or image into the scanner feed area. You press a big button that usually says "fax" and then, a screen pops up saying to dial the number. You dial the number and press SEND. once you press Send, the machine will scan the document, dial the number and sing a little dial up modem song awaiting a response from the receiving machine. the receiving machine acknowledges the fax, and the singing is no longer audible (but it continues because the modem song is actually data transmission/reception). after about 20-60 seconds, the fax completes and the call ends. As for the particular model you have, the functions should be about the same, though the buttons and arrangements may be different. FYI, you can send a fax straight from the PC too, if you have a dial-up fax/modem card.

Want to connect fax machine to pc

The KX-FM131BX, KX-FM131CX and KX-FM131AL do not connect directly to a computer. They only have RJ-11 connections (to the phone line (line in) for all models and to another phone or answering machine (in some cases).

To send and receive faxes with a computer, you need some sort of USB or network port on the machine. Brother has some that may fit your needs: is one of their lower end models.

I hope this helps.

Problem with fax on estudio 3511

When enabling the Offramp Gateway, this equipment works as an SMTP server to receive
Emails from the Internet. To enable the STMP transmission in this equipment, designate the hostname (or specific domain) that relates to this equipment in the DNS server, and designate the MX record to receive the Emails that are sent to the equipment’s domain in the SMTP server in your local area network. Then the SMTP server should be configured to transmit the received Emails to the equipment in the SMTP transmission. For example, if the hostname of this equipment is designated as “”, the SMTP server receives an Email whose forwarding address is “<account name>”, and the SMTP server transmits the received Email to the equipment. Then this equipment will send the received Email as a facsimile document to the fax number that is specified in the <account name> part.

Setup Procedures:
1. Setting up the DNS server and SMTP server.
2. Setting up the TCP/IP and the HTTP Network Service to enable TopAccess
3. Setting up the SMTP Network Service.
4. Setting the Internet Fax Settings.
5. Setting up the Fax Settings
6. Registering the Relay Box with Email addresses.
