HP Office Jet G85 - Scanner and Fax on a Network

We have recently installed a new server (MS Small Business Server) in the office and networked the HP OfficeJet G85 Printer. The Printer is connected directly into the server via USB port. A separate fax line runs directly into the back of the printer also and we are receiving faxes and sending them manually.

I have 2 questions:
1. We are unable to scan over the network. Do we need to install a print server or can we configure the scanner to work over the network?
2. Can we configure the printer to allow networked users to send a Fax from their client computers?

 HP's OfficeJet G85 is just such a a device that can also handle network sharing, but this feature will require the addition of a JetDirect print server - adding around £200 to the cost

Thanks nobus,

So would the JetDirect print server also allow users to utilise the fax function on the network?
i think so, yes, but to be sure, i would contact HP for it, before spending
Forced accept.
