Installing multiple Fax Printers in Windows Server 2003

We have installed a four port modem in our Windows Server 2003 Domain
Controller.  This server is also used for file/print sharing.  

The goal was to have four printers that connect to each of the four ports on
the modem so that users can decide what the outgoing number/line will be and
print to the respective one.  

After installing the modem I can see all of the ports configured under fax
services, but I can't seem to figure out how to make multiple fax printers.

Is this possible?

Thanks!

Not sure that you can on a native win 2003 machine.

you may need third party additions.


I hope this helps !

Thanks for the links, I am leaning towards it can't be done also-- but was hoping to find a definitive answer somewhere first.  We're using a 4-port Perle PCI-RAS4 V.92 Universal 3.3/5v Data/Fax/Voice Modem (~$900) Modem, and I can see all the ports and test the lines using hyperterminal, so it isn't the same issue as the first link you posted.

The problem is I can't seem to add a second fax printer.  I am leaning towards maybe trying GFI FaxMaker.  Does anyone else have any idea if it is possible on native win 2003 or know of better software?
