Hello,

James is running Windows 7 with a fax modem connected.  He uses Windows Fax & Scan to send and recieve faxes.

Lars is also on the same LAN running Windows 8.  Lars would like to be able to view received faxes on James' PC.  He is currently able to access the shared folder where the fax TIFF files are created.  However, it is desirable for him to be able to see in a viewer (or Windows Scan & Fax also) so that he can see the fax details.  Can this be done?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Real-Timer
