Inserting a dial prefix
A dial prefix is a number or group of numbers that are automatically added to the beginning of every
fax number you enter at the control panel or from the software. The maximum number of characters
for a dial prefix is 50.
The default setting is Off. You might want to turn this setting on and enter a prefix if, for example,
you have to dial a number such as 9 to get a telephone line outside of your company telephone
system. While this setting is activated, you can dial a fax number without the dial prefix by using
manual dial. For instructions, see
