I have a really strange one. Hope some one can help. I have two XP-pro
workstations & 5 XP-Home workstations connected to our 2003 server. The Pro
workstations have no problems using the fax printer on the server. The home
workstations have an error 'all fax printers are inaccessible'. When you look
at the fax printer status box it says ' communication error'. It dosn't
matter who logs in to either machine. The user can be a user or an
administrator and they still can't fax from xp-home work stations. This is
driving me absolutly crazy. Anyone have any ideas.

Thanks

For the home machines to connect, it has to be part of same work group as
the 2003 server and the logged in user should be there in 2003 server also.
