Fax machine

My father,(in his 80's) has been given a fax machine. Without wishing to sound a complete idiot, I have never had much to do with them. Can they be set up using the normal phone line? I know this is not a strictly PC question, but I always get the answers here. He wants to use it with his phone line if possible.

yes it can be set up on a normal phone line - if you plug it in to an extension socket it will share the same phone number as the phone.

It will automatically answer the call after x amount of rings which you can usually set up via the menus

Do you know what make it is? Someone might be able to give you more information about it.
