Using a HP printer for faxing

One of my clients just got a HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M177.  It works great, but I haven't used it as far is having a fax.  The client said they only want to send off for fax not receive faxes.  

The phone plug goes into  LaserJet Pro MFP M177, and then the phone goes out in into the phone.

If you could explain that would be great.

Thank you.

If you have set up fax, it will send and receive. You can't "just" send. But what you can do is block incoming numbers. I am not sure how many HP printers can do this but HP tends to provide some commonality in this type of function.

That is what I would try.

You can turn off the automatic receive and just let it ring without answering.
