To receive a fax in a fax machine:

1) connect the fax machine to a phone line

2) have the person sending the fax send the fax to the phone/fax line number

3) receive the fax with the fax machine.

Most fax machines should be set to automatically receive, however some will need you to press the "ok" or green button when the fax line is ringing.
