Question about Canon PIXMA MX310 All-In-One Printer
There are two ways to configure a fax machine to answer the phone line. The first way is by pushing the "auto answer" key on the keyboard of the fax itself. When this key is used, the fax machine answers all calls that come in after a certain number of rings. The other way is to manually press the fax button when an incoming call is happening. You can set the number of rings for your machine to pick up by using the keys on the fax machine under the menu feature and then scroll using the up and down arrow keys until you see fax set up and then number of rings.
I have heard about the option that your speaking of, where they give you a separate phone number for your customers to fax when you own a business line but I don't know how the fax machine itself would be able to distinguish between the normal ring of a regular call and the double ring of the merged fax line call. I was told that when I set that up for my friends business recently, that the machine would auto recognize the double ring without any programming and to use the auto answer feature for all calls. He has not had any faxes yet (its a new business) so I can't say for sure if it works or not? I can say that none of his regular calls have been picked up by the fax so far though.
