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.

  • You can also access Fax Service Manager by adding this tool to a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) console. Use this method, in particular, if you want to use the console to manage a fax server remotely. Follow the instructions in MMC Help for adding a snap-in to a console and configuring it to manage the local computer or a remote computer.
