OK I have a question about the best way to setup clients on my network up to the fax server.

I have a Standard Windows 2008 64 Bit Server with a fax card using basic Windows Fax Server software.

How do I connect my clients all running windows xp pro to the fax server so they can send faxes from there desk top just like they would send a print job to the network printer

This describes setting up the client on the server itself, but it's basically the same for a workstation.

In this case, the "client" is the term for the software that allows a workstation to connect to the server software and send information to it. The server software is called "Fax Server" and the client software is, generically speaking, called "fax client software." In the case of Windows Vista/7, the client software is called "Windows Fax and Scan."

The term "client" is generally used to distinguish a workstation from a server.  A workstation itself is often referred to as a "client." And software running on the workstation that communicates with a specific server software running on the server is also referred to as the "client." A common example is Outlook, which is the email "client" software that runs on workstations and connects to the Exchange software running on the server.
