I installed the Fax Services and the external modem fine, but when I go to Server Management and click configure fax services. I receive an erro that says fax configuration wizard is unable to share the fax printer. you should share the printer manually. However when I go to printers it is not there. Under the fax console it says no fax printer installed. How do I fix this?

Thank you in advance.

With SBS you should always follow the wizards dont do anything manualy so to speak.

Check to make sure the modem is installed correctly with all drivers. If thats fine, try and undo anything you did and follow the wizard.

When you say you installed Fax Services... do you mean from Add/Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows Programs?  This is not the SBS Shared Fax Service.

The complete guide to installing and configuring SBS's Fax Service is here:  http://sbsurl.com/fax
