Procedures to connect a Window 7 Pro 32 or 64 bit workstation to Windows Fax Server running on Windows Server 2012 R2?

When connecting to a Windows Fax Server running on Windows Server 2008 R2 I've followed these procedures:

Click the Start button, click All Programs, and then click Windows Fax and Scan. To use Fax view, click Fax at the bottom of the left pane. Click the Tools menu, and then click Fax Accounts. Click Add, and then, in the Fax Setup wizard, click Connect to a fax server on my network and follow the instructions.

Is it still the same procedures with the newer server operating system, or has it changed?

I'm seeing some more complicated procedures on the net that I'm hoping to avoid. steps 10 to 14 about adding an alternative driver.
