Windows 2008 SBS fax services and Windows XP Professional

I have successfully installed fax service on server itself (Windows 2008 SBS standard). Now I can send and receive faxes on server, but I dont know how to use services on Windows XP Pro clients. The method that used in Windows 2003 SBS doesnt work.

You should be able to add the fax as you do a printer to each client.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

That Method does not work

Let me be more detailed:

1. I am running Windows SBS Standard 2008 x64, with Fax services configured and working directly from server.
2. When I try to add fax as a printeron Windows XP it asks me for drivers, which I cannot find.
3. When I have checked Additional driver properties on Fax printeron SBS server it only contains x64 based driver. If I try to add x86 based drivers I cannot find them.

Did anyone already experienced that problem running fax services on x64 (Win 2008) based OS and x86 based clients (WinXP)?

I found a solution, you need some files from ordinary Windows 2008 32 bit (x86). The details are described here:

In SBS 2008, add normal users in group "Windows SBS Fax Administrator Group" (or something like that). If not, the fax device is available only to administrator users.

Simply double click the shared fax device from XP clients in network resources and it works.
