Xerox copy/fax machine connection to computer

Xerox copy/fax machine connection to computer

(OP)
In the main office, we have a copy machine with a built in fax machine, is there a way you can connect this to a computer, perhaps connect it to your dial up modem and call out to the fax machine from computer and have it print that way? any ideas? it only has a phone jack on the machine itself, i would have been blessed if it had a parralel port! but oh well...

RE: Xerox copy/fax machine connection to computer

Most likely has a network port and/or a USB port. Most copiers (and I don't know what model you have or what was purchased) have network ports where you can connect to them just like any other network printer. They also normally come with lan-fax print drivers as well so you can print to the lan-fax printer on your computer and the copier will fax out through the phone line.
