Fax from Vista PC using Win2K3 shared fax?

Posted: 10-15-2008, 08:50 PM
We have three PC's running here. We are trying to utilize the fax modem in
one of the PC's to be able to fax from all three.

The file server is running Windows 2003 Server and has a fax modem installed
and shared to the network.

The other two PC's are running Windows Vista Home Premium with SP1
installed.

Is there any way that the Vista PC's can use the Windows 2003 Server fax
services? If not, are there any patches or programs that can add this
capability?

Thanks!

There is no reason you can't used a shared Windows 2003 Server fax modem in
a Vista WFS fax account. If you are having trouble, spell it out.

How's that? : )

Yes, I'm having trouble. Where do I find the WFS fax account? This is Vista
Home Premium.

Thanks!
