    Fax Printer

    I'm looking for a Fax Printer (Driver) I can install and share over the network.
    I would like users to be able to fax from the LAN and the driver or Fax Printer to be installed on one machine which has a modem.
    Most of our pc's do not have modems because we use LAN.

    Thanks for the reply and the link.
    I've had a look at it and it seems OK.
    I was really hoping for a cheaper alternative for testing really before laying out any expenditure, perhaps something freeware.

    Thanks once again.

    Have you looked at the Microsoft fax driver? It's included with Win XP. Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs> Add/Remove Windows Components>Fax Services. I have had no problems with it. With any application, just print to the Fax Printer. It can be shared just like any other printer.

    Hi Rebel

    I could leave the XP machine running no problem, but the fax is not sharable !!
    Is yours setup to be shared and how did you set it up ?

    Dave, you are absolutely correct. My mistake - the fax is not shareable. Sorry about that misinformation.

    No problem Rebel, thanks for the help anyway.

    Nice little touch from Microsoft though !!


    I think we are looking at reducing some phone lines in the future and going ADSL through a new switchboard.
    We'll address this problem then.
