My G4 was acting like a Fax Receiving Server, I wanted my G5 to send faxes thru this, following instructions here I was unable to find it, even with print sharing turned on.
Then I finally figured it out, On the Mac with the fax, create a document and click print and then FAX.
This will create a FAX Printer, rename this Fax printer to something like Fax Server.
Now you can cancel this fax test.
Now go to the other Mac that wishes to connect and open Print Setup Untility, Go to the VIEW menu and you should see the Shared Faxes, give that Fax Server fax a click and your done.
Now when you fax you should be able to send it thru to the other computer.

I followed the instruction and set up one iMAC as faxserver and 4 ohter iMacs as clients. The problem is that the modem does not hang up and hold the line once in a while. has anyone experienced this?
