CHAPTER 2: Introduction

2. Introduction

This guide is designed to help you install and use the Line Share 120H. Please read through this guide and select the installation procedures appropriate for your specific application before attempting to connect or operate the Line Share 120H.

NOTE

According to standard industry practice, surge protection is recommended for use with all electronic devices. A surge suppressor and/or line conditioning should be used on the input power supply, as well as the connected telephone line.

Call Waiting: Fax and modem transmissions could be disrupted by the call-waitingbeep tone.

Call Forwarding: If call forwarding is enabled, the Line Share 120H cannot process calls on that line.

Phone Company Voice Mail: This service is not compatible with the Line Share 120H. However, standalone voice-mailsystems work well with the Line Share 120H.

We recommend that call forwarding and the phone company’s voice mail services be discontinued.

The Line Share 120H is a state-of-the-arttelephone line sharing device that eliminates the extra dedicated telephone lines used to operate a fax, modem, or other telephone devices.

The Line Share 120H quickly directs incoming telephone calls to one of three appropriate destinations, typically a computer modem, fax/modem, or fax machine, as well as a telephone and answering machine, or any other telephone device that responds to a standard phone company ring signal.

Please read through the rest of this guide to learn how to properly install and operate the Line Share 120H.
