This article describes how to manage fax printers in Windows 2000.
By creating additional fax printers, you can easily customize printing preferences. You can specify different billing codes and different times to send your faxes. For example, you can have one printer for sending faxes now and another for sending faxes when discount rates apply.
You should not need to reinstall the original fax printer because Windows 2000 looks for new hardware each time you start your computer.
You can view the printers in the Printers folder by clicking Start, pointing to Settings, and then clicking Printers.
If you are unable to add a fax printer, you may have insufficient user rights. See your system or fax server administrator.
This setting applies only to the selected printer. If you want to use different billing codes for different purposes (such as faxes sent by different departments), create a different printer for each billing code.
You can also add or change the billing code for a fax printer by using the Send Fax Wizard.
