Connect the telephone line

Connect one end of the telephone line cord to the jack labeled LINE on the left
side of the fax machine. Connect the other end to a modular wall jack.

Special Line Considerations

Roll Over Phone Lines

A roll over phone system is a group of two or more separate telephone lines that
pass incoming calls to each other if they are busy. The calls are usually passed
down or "rolled over" to the next available phone line in a preset order.
Your fax machine can work in a roll over system as long as it is the last number
in the sequence, so the call cannot roll away. Do not put the fax machine on any
of the other numbers; when the other lines are busy and a second fax call is
received, the fax call is transferred to a line that does not have a fax machine.
Your fax machine will work best on a dedicated line.

Two-Line Phone System

A two-line phone system is nothing more than two separate phone numbers on
the same wall outlet. The two phone numbers can be on separate jacks (RJ11) or
combined into one jack (RJ14). Your fax machine must be plugged into an RJ11
jack. RJ11 and RJ14 jacks may be equal in size and appearance and both may
contain 4 wires (black, red, green, yellow). To test the type of jack, plug in a
two-line phone and see if it can access both lines. If it can, you must separate the
line for your fax machine.
