Poll to receive a fax

Polling allows the HP all-in-one to ask another fax machine to send a fax that it has in
its queue. When you use the Poll to Receive feature, the HP all-in-one calls the
designated fax machine and requests the fax from it. The designated fax machine
must be set for polling and have a fax ready to send.

NOTE: The HP all-in-one does not support polling pass codes. Polling pass
codes are a security feature that require the receiving fax machine to provide a
pass code to the device it is polling in order to receive the fax. Make sure the
device you are polling does not have a pass code set up (or has not changed the
default pass code) or the HP all-in-one will not be able to receive the fax.

To set up poll to receive a fax from the device control panel
Press FAX and then select Poll to Receive.
2. Enter the fax number of the other fax machine.
3. Press START FAX Black or START FAX Color.

NOTE: If you press START FAX Color but the sender sent the fax in black
and white, the device prints the fax in black and white.
