WinFax Pro Host Server Issues

I am trying to set up a Fax Server using Win Fax Pro 10.03.  I am using Windows XP Pro.  I have set up the server and added the administrator from my domain onto the computer.  When I try to connect from a client computer, after installation of Win Fax Pro, it says make sure the account has been created for the user and that it has the same user name/password as the client computer.  I added the user to the fax server and logged onto it, but it still gives me the same message.

The error is:  WinFax PRO is unable to connect to the WinFAx PRO Hose station called {computer name}.  Make sure an account has been created for you on the host station (using the same name/password used to login on your client station).
The account i am using on my client computer is on the WinFax Server computer.

Now my problem is that it is giving me an access denied error when I try connecting another computer to the Fax Server Host.
    The error is:  Setup cannot connect to WinFax PRO on {computer name} (Reason: Access is denied).  Check that this is the correct host name.

I'll get the error even when I use the ipaddress to try to connect to the fax host.

I don't get Access Denied anymore.

But, i still get unable to connect.  It still saying that the host station needs the account on there with same username and password.  I put the user name onto the computer and logged onto the computer with it, so i know it has the account the host machine.  The passwords are on my domain controller, but i don't see why that would be a problem.
