Disabled fax transmission log; Sending faxes from PC; Print Transmission Log;



A fax transmission log prints when sending a fax from the computer even though you have disabled the printer's "Print Transmission Log" setting. Sending a fax from printer itself will not print the fax transmission logs.


Recommended Action

Users are recommended to update the firmware to the latest PE Release. See section below.
