Can I send a fax using the Fax - HP Officejet 6500 E710n-z driver?

[ Edited ]


I just installed the all in one driver OJ6500_E710n-z_231 for my new OfficeJet 6500A Plus printer. When the driver installation was finished, I noticed two drivers instead of just one:


  1. HP Officejet 6500 E710n-z (Network)
  2. Fax - HP Officejet 6500 E710n-z (Network)

I can print using the first driver, no problem. The second driver leaves me with the impression that I should be able to send a fax straight from my computer by using it as "the printer". Am I  understanding this correctly?


However, when I tried, I was informed after a long pause that the printer is not set up to do this. I checked the documentation, the printer's menus, and the internet, but I cannot find any information on how to setup the printer to let me send faxes directly from my computer.


Can anyone enlighten me?


For the record, I have already run the FAX setup wizard and confirmed that I can send and recieve faxes using the fax scanner. Now I want to know if I can use that FAX .. driver that was installed to send faxes through the printer straight from my computer.
