Sending by IP-Fax (IP-Fax Destinations)

This section explains how to specify a destination using IP-Fax transmission.

When using IP-Fax transmission, specify the IP-Fax destination (IP address, host name, or alias telephone number) in place of the fax number.


  • When sending an IP-Fax, select either “SIP” or “H.323” as the protocol.

  • To display “Select Line” on the screen, make the settings in “Initial Settings” in the Facsimile Features menu. If you are using SIP, specify “Enable SIP” and “SIP Settings”. If you are using H.323, specify “Enable H.323” and “H.323 Settings”. For details about these settings, see “Initial Settings”.

  • Ask your administrator whether you should select “SIP” or “H.323” as the protocol.

  • Depending on the security settings, [Manual Entry] might not appear and you might not be able to enter the IP-Fax destination.

  • To select a destination from the Address Book, see “Using the Address Book to Specify Destinations”.

  • IP-Fax will be available only if the gateway (T.38-compliant), gatekeeper, and SIP server are compatible with this machine. For a list of certified compatible gateways, gatekeepers, and SIP servers, contact your local retail or service representative.

  • Methods of entering a destination vary depending on the network settings made by the administrator. Ask the machine administrator for details. For details about entering the IP-Fax destination, see “When using a gatekeeper server or SIP server”.

  • For details about text entry, see “Entering Text”, About This Machine.

  • The Facsimile Features menu includes a user parameter setting (switch 17, bit 2) that enables you to configure the machine to force the user to press [Add] whenever s/he specifies a destination using a destination key. This prevents users accidentally sending documents to the wrong destination. See “Parameter Settings”.

  • If you press [Prg. Dest.], you can register an entered destination in the destination list. For details about storing a destination you entered, see “Registering Entered Destinations to the Address Book”.

  • For the maximum number of digits that can be included in a destination, see “Maximum Values”.
