SBS 2011 Fax server is terrible #3

Back to the XP machines.  I have installed the correct fax drivers from SBS 2003 on to the XP machines.  They can send faxes, and receive an email confirmation/failure. However, when I open the fax console on an XP machine, I cannot view the inbox, outbox, sent items, etc... There is a message that says, "All fax printers are inaccessible."  If an XP machine sends a fax, and it gets stuck, it is impossible to cancel it.

Is there a fix for this?

It's not the machine which is sending faxes it's the user.  So you need to be sure that users have proper permissions.  Add any user that you want to be able to send faxes to the "SBS Fax Administrators group" on your server.

Have been fighting this for over a week and have had some success.  The above post (adding users to sbs fax admin group) was a huge help.  I'm having one other issue that is causing me some grief with this setup, and that is after I replaced the dll files on the XP machines with (for lack of a better description) the 2007 versions, it worked for a couple of days and then they changed back to the 2009 version of the dll's.  I believe it had to do with a server reboot, but won't be able to test that theory until this weekend.  Has anyone else seen this issue?

Not sure how you changed the DLL's, but make sure you follow this KB article:

I don't see how a server reboot would affect the dll files on the XP machines.
