You connect a fax machine by following the instructions in the machine's user manual - every machine can potentially be different.

On the most basic level, a fax machine will require a power source (from the power area of the machine to a power socket) as well as a phone connection - usually this is an RJ 11 plug (the same as a regular phone plug) that connects from the phone line on the fax machine to the phone line in the wall.
