    Assisted Solution

    there should be an option for automatic answer or manual answer.
    if you are sharing the line with the phone you will want it on manual

    so when you answer the phone and hear the beeps, walk over to the fax machine and press start.

    That way the fax machine wont answer real phone calls.

    You can configure most fax machines to answer after a certain number of rings.  Check p.21 of the manual - you can use manual or F/T mode.
