Here is back story: We are updating all our users to Windows 7 and we use an ancient database system called piclan that will only run in windows xp because it relies on the ipx protocol. Pic outputs order confirmations that need to be faxed to end users. Since Pic is in the virtual world it attempts to use it's own virtual windows xp fax instead of the windows 7 fax. (Windows 7 fax works).
To make virtual fax work this is what I've tried so far:
I've added virtual user to our domain, gave virtual user printer fax privileges.
I can see fax in printers and devices.
Under tools->fax printer status it says "%servername% connection error".
If I go to "Send fax" I have two options, "%servername%/fax" and "%servername%/fax on my pc".
I've tried both and the fax was never received.
Virtual xp config info:
- intel 82578dc gigabit network connection option tested
- shared network network connection option tested
- Up to date with the latest windows patches (SP3).
- Windows firewall is disabled.
