Terminal Server - Add Network Fax Printer for all users

My network uses multiple terminal servers to support my users.  I have installed Windows Fax server on one of my terminal servers, this allows all users of that terminal server to fax straight from their application.  Getting this to work via the other servers is a struggle.  I can add the fax as a network printer for each user of these other servers manually, but would like to add it as a local printer so that I must only do this once.  Normally I would add the printer as a local device using the "Local Port" option, but I am unsure of what driver to assign it and am unable to find the Universal Fax Driver anywhere.  Has anyone else come across this?

You can just share the printer on your DC/SBS as you have described and call the following VBS scirpt from your logon script

on error resume next
Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\SERVER\FAX"

Also add the Fax Console icon to the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop folder on each of the terminal servers (so they can manage/see their own queues).

I was thinking there has got to be a easy script.  Thanks for your help!
