    Vista build 5308. During setup of the fax client you have the choose of
    using a modem or a network fax server. I can only assume that the fax
    client during account setup is referring to Windows Fax Services; which i
    have running on a windows 2003 server std ed.

  4. I'm honestly not sure whether they've tested it with Windows Server 2003 or
    not - but it certainly seems to work fine in 5342.

  5. If you have a datafax modem in your PC, thats what you will use to fac if
    you are not on a network. If you are on a network, connected to a Windows
    Server domain, the Windows Server is setup with fax services installed from
    the Windows Components by your Administrator, then you would use Network Fax
    Server.

    Why would I want to supply 100 users with a modem in each machine? Why
    not control faxes from a central location? Again, my question is has anyone
    gotten netowrk faxing working using build 5308 (or any build for that
    matter) and what steps did you take to accomplish this goal.

  7. As long as you set up your Fax Server on Windows Server 2003/2003 R2
    properly for it to work with Windows XP clients, it should work exactly the
    same with Vista.

    Can you nail it down to anything specific?

    To be honest, I'm not sure if i have fax services miss configured or
    configure properly due to the lack of documentation that exists on technet.

  12. We have, of course, tested the Windows Vista Fax and Scan application with a
    Windows 2003 fax server. As far as I know, it should be working in most
    scenarios. Zack is correct: if you can connect a Windows XP client to your
    fax server, you should be able to connect your Windows Vista client to the
    server.

    I suspect the problem is on the server setup side. You might want to check
    http://blogs.msdn.com/sbsdocsteam/archive/2005/12/06/500777.aspx to see if
    the instructions there can help.
