Installing Fax Components

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

To create a fax server, you must install the Fax Server role. This installs Fax Service Manager, the Fax service, and a fax printer. In addition, you must install the Windows Fax and Scan feature separately to view the incoming fax queue, the inbox, and the outbox.

Additional considerations

To install Fax components, you must be a member of the Administrators group or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.
