We have a SHARP AR M317 Multi-Function printer\scanner\faxing machine (networked) that we can fax from User's PC using the Sharp Printer Fax driver. User Profiles are set up on the Sharp machine for scanning to Users' folders on their PC. The Sharp unit has an analog modem built into it with an analog telephone number configured, etc. How can we receive faxes directly through the Sharp unit to individual User PCs?

This unit cannot route incoming faxes to PCs on the local network. Traffic can only go out, not in. Incoming faxes terminate at the unit and are printed.
