Install MS Fax via GPO

Hi, I recently setup our 2003 server as a fax server, however our clients dont have the fax option ticked in the setup. So when I try and setup the fax, it has to install the service + change firewall settings....

I was wondering if I could do this via GPO..... I can install the fax manually, but it would be ideal if the fax service and firewall setting were already there waiting... Then I dont have to log in as admin, I can just go through the fax config wizard and its all done.

The article mentions some limitations regarding the fax service in Windows 2000, but I would give a try in Windows XP.
The answer file should look like
Fax = on
The deploy it you can use a startup script within a group policy.
Hope that helps.
