You cannot share "Fax Service".

You cannot share "Fax Service" just as you do an ordinary printer, even though "Fax Service" is treated as a virtual printer. We would like you to understand that it is the specification of Windows 2000.

This symptom results from the fact that "Fax Service" is a client component only of a local computer. That is, you cannot use it as a fax server of a network.
