I'm running Windows Server 2008R2 and I'm trying to set up an HP M1526dn as a fax machine (this is a multi-function device). The printer is not directly connected to the server, but is on the network, and works fine as a fax for other Windows 7 machines as well as Macs that are on the network.
When I attempt to add it to Windows Server 2008R2, it gets added as a printer only. I am unable to use it as a fax. I'm only looking to use it for outgoing faxes.
Any ideas on how to get this to work? When I called HP's tech support line, as soon as I told them it was Server 2008, they told me to call Microsoft.
I even went so far as to set up a Windows 7 machine, added the HP to it as a fax (which works as expected), and then tried to share it with the Server 2008 machine. No joy. It again works fine as a printer, but refuses to work as a fax.
