How to access to a shared fax

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.print_fax (More info?)

Hello !
I have Windows 2003 Enterprise Server with a fax printer device installed. I
share this fax. Fax works fine on Windows2003, but I can't access to my fax
printer from other computers running Windows XP. Shared fax is visible on
\\max-serv\fax; fax client is automatically installed on Windows XP Clients
when I click on it; but I can't print any fax. When I try to list devices on
my Windows XP fax console, \\mx_serv isn't accessible ("connection
error") -even if I try to connect to the server in Administrator-.
Have you an idea ? a link ? some explanations ?
Thanks for all

(please excuse my bad english)

    Install XP - SP1 (or SP2) & try.
