Abstract

This article enables a virtual function enhancement of the G3 facsimile (fax) network. When the fax works as a receiver, it can communicate with a sending fax executing more functions than the receiving fax has. These functions are performed by the third fax. The receiving fax passes all the information from the sending fax to the third fax if the sending fax requests functions that the receiving fax does not have but the third fax has. A function table, which shows functional capabilities of the third fax, is stored in the receiving fax at the initial settings.
