How do we allow Non-Domain users to access the Fax Server in Windows 2008

We are using Windows Server 2008 SP2 in a domain environment. In addition to the domain we have another company, which uses a workgroup and is not in our domain that needs to use our fax server. This workgroup has a username and password for access to our domain.

We can establish a connection to the fax server from the workgroup computers that are running Windows 7 but when we try to fax we receive an error.
When we try to map a printer to the fax server from a Windows XP machine we receive a Permission Denied error.

What are we doing wrong? I thought the Windows 2008 Fax Server would accept workgroup clients.

Right click the objects (no matter it is a printer or a folder) to be shared in the WIndows Server 2008 and add the usernames of the Windows XP or Windows 7 client computers is added with the Read/Write Sharing permission.

When you try to connect from the Windows XP or Windows 7 client computers, use the IP address of the Windows Server 2008 instead of the computer name of the Windows Server.
