imageCLASS MF6160dw FAX Settings and VoIP



I have a couple of questions about setting this imageCLASS MF6160dw Multifunction Printer up to FAX, as follows:


(1)  I looked at the settings on the front panel, but really had no clue what to set them to;


(2) I have VoIP for a telephone service provider and was hoping to share the line with my FAX. 


     (a)  Is it possible to use this unit to send faxes over VoIP?


     (b) If it is possible, what do I need to use for FAX settings?


     (c) Also, is it possible to share  my one VoIP connection with my FAX?


Thank you,
