I want to be able to send and receive faxes from a Windows 2003 Enterprise server that has the Windows Fax Component and Fax Printer installed.  I want to share this fax to other users on a domain.

I tried sharing a Windows Fax on a Windows XP machine, but when I try to do this, I get the following message: "Sharing is not supported for this type of printer".

I was hoping I can share the fax printer on a Windows 2003 Server machine though.

problem is, the fax needs software istalled locally, you may be able to install the sw on the client and then connect to it remotely
