Select the Communication options you want to use for faxing over your phone line.

Setting Options Description
DRD All If you are using a Distinctive Ring Service on your phone line, your telephone company can assign two or more phone numbers to the same line and assign different ring patterns to each. If you use this service, select the number of rings for your fax number as the DRD setting so your product can receive faxes on the correct number of rings. All is the default setting and works for phone lines that do not use this service.

Rings to Answer 1 to 9 Sets the number of rings before your product receives a fax. The default setting is 4. If Auto Answer is turned on and an answering machine is connected to the product, make sure this setting is set higher than the number of rings your answering machine is set to answer a call.
