Hi All,

I have installed a new Windows 2003 server and run dcpromo.

I plugged and installed us Robotics ext 56k modem.

I keep getting "Could not open a connection
to the fax service.  The fax service might not be started,
or the computer name might be incorrect."
 And "Access denied"

Please see if you can help

I had the same problem, and this is what fixed it on mine.

" This problem seems to occur when you try to install Fax
Services on a domain controller.

[Beginning]
Fax Service runs under the account NETWORK SERVICE.  In most cases on DC,
such issues happen when applying the domain policy changes the policies that
apply to NETWORK SERVICE. The following policies need to be enabled for
NETWORK SERVICE for fax to work.

(1) Adjust memory quotas for a process
(2) Generate security audits
(3) Log on as a service
(4) Replace a process level token
[End]

If your having this problem on a domain controller then this is were you can
find the settings:
(Start | All programs | Admistrative Tools | Domain Controller Security
Policy)
In the left pane, choose Local Policies then User Rights Assignment. You
will then see the setting on the right.

If your having this problem on a local machine then this is were you can
find the settings:
(Start | All programs | Admistrative Tools | Local Security Policy)
In the left pane, choose Local Policies then User Rights Assignment. You
will then see the setting on the right."
