->The all in one device includes the ability to send and receive faxes via telephone line only.
-> Sending \ Receive Fax is only possible manually from the All in one printer ( We can't fax from computer using All in one printer)


If you want to receive faxes and send faxes, you need to fix a modem into computer, and the telephone line would be hooked up to the computer.

you need to connect a telephone line in to the rear of the machine.
you nee to install the appropriate software for you hp machine. Hp site has specific software download for free.
When you want to fax you place item on the fax machine you press fax button, the machine asks for the number. you dial and press send. the machine buffers the pages then dials.If you want to fax from your computer you do not need a modem in the pc, just when printing a document you choose hp fax. a program jumps up and allows you to send via the hp all in one using its built in fax facillities. remembering to have your  hp plugged into the phone line. i do this every day and it works perfectly. best of luck
