Setting Up Fax Forwarding Rules

Estimated reading time: < 1 min

Kyocera TASKalfa Machine fax forwarding rules can be set up in two different ways. Using the web interface is one way of setting up your fax forwarding rules while using the touch screen interface on your multifunction copier is another.

With Kyocera Copier Machines, you can set up rules for the copy to be sent to an email address or a specific folder in your office, thus decreasing the need for physical paper faxes in the office as a result.

1. Type your machine’s IP address into the URL bar of a web-browser

You will need your IP address to access the Kyocera MFP Interface. Once you have the IP Address, type it into your Machine’s interface and login in.
(If you do not know your machine’s IP address, see our guide here: How to find your IP address)
