understanding a networkable all in one AIO printer scanner fax

Last Modified: 2013-12-21
I've been stymied by these questions and thought you can help.

on 'multifunction' printers when they say it has fax capability, I've seen variations in what that means.  is there an easy way to easily tell?  I'm thinking the oines that go directly on the network

fax capability might / might not include:

fax from a desktop PC?
incoming faxes show up on a desktop PC?

and for scanning:
can several PCs scan from their desktop / control the scanner
when at the scanner, can you direct what PC will get the scanned doc?

I think that's it.
