I have 2, Brother IntelliFax-4100e High Speed Business-Class Laser Fax machines and 1 fax line.  We are running 2 companies from this office and would like to be able to use the same line for both.  Is this possible?  Could I use a splitter to connect them both and only use one as the machine that answers incoming faxes?  Is this possible?  The "Fax ID" is set on the fax machine, correct?

You can use a splitter but if you only have one line then only one fax machine can be used at a time.  Also, yes you could use a splitter and have only one fax machine configured to answer that line.

What about sending out?  Is the caller ID for that line used at all? Or it will only use what we set on the fax machine as the ID?

Be default, the ID that is set on the fax machine is the one that will go out and will print on the top of the fax pages that get received at the other end.  Some faxes have Caller ID built in, and it will show that as well if the end user has that configured.

OK.  I think this will work.
