Can I connect my printer directly to my modem to access my fax feature? Or do I need to get a phone/answer machine. I plan to use my phone line exclusive for sending and receiving faxes.
You can connect the fax to the modem. As long as you have a dialtone, it should work.
Adding to Barbie, if you do, call in and have your voicemail rate codes removed. The voicemail active may interfere with receiving faxes.
