Fax over network

  1. Nov 11, 2011 #1
    we have a ricoh mfp9001. we can scan and print to it from client pc's.
    is there a way to fax from each workstation over lan from the mfp 9001.
    we can send and receive from the mfp itself.

    Welcome to PhysicsForums!

    Fax (especially with what you're trying to do with it) seems so passé--why not just scan (to whomever's workstation) and e-mail the resultant image / PDF / whatever, and courier over anything that requires an actual signature? Nevertheless, contacting Ricoh directly may yield something more favourable.

    When you want to fax something, do a print preview or maybe print and look for print device names. One of them should be " ... fax". To send a fax, you want to print to the " ... fax" device, which should pop up a dialog box asking you for fax number and cover sheet info.
