In today's article you will learn how to install the Fax Server on Windows Server 2012.

Step 3

Now you must select the server from the Server Pool. Since I have only one server in the Server pool, my server is selected by default.


After selecting the server click on Next.

Step 5

Now a List of "Rolls" will appear in front of you, scroll down to find the option "Fax Server".


As you click on the Fax Server a new window will be opened that will ask you to Add the Features, click on "Add Features".

The next page will show you information about the Fax Server, it will also tell you that, to set up a Fax Server, you must also set up the Print Server that I described in my previous article named How To Install Print Server.


Step 7

The next page gives information about the Print and Document Services, here simply click on Next.


Now "Roll Services" will be available for "Print and Document Services". Select all of them and click on Next.


Step 8

Now a confirmation page will be opened, where you can give permission to restart the server if required or you can click on Install without giving permission to restart the server.


As you click on Install the installation will begin that will take time, depending on the processing power of your system.
