HP Officejet 4630 Fax Setup

A HP Officejet 4630 Fax or a telecopy is the transmission of a scanned document through a telephone line to the phone number associated with the printer. The document to be sent is scanned and converted to its digital form. In this digital form, the information is transmitted as electrical signals through the telephone lines. At the receiving end these signals are reconverted and printed. The HP OfficeJet 4630 Printer, has a fax feature that scans the document to be faxed and sends it via a telephone connection to another fax enabled machine. Faxing is more secure than email as it uses a dedicated landline instead of an Internet connection.
