Fax Client User Access Rights

The fax service is a secure service. In the Microsoft Win32 environment, users must have access rights to successfully call certain fax client functions. The service performs an access check each time a client application calls a fax client function. To check a user's access rights, an application can call the FaxAccessCheck function.

If you are using the Microsoft Component Object Model (COM) implementation, your fax client application cannot access this functionality at this time. If a client does not have the access privileges required to perform a specific task, the method or function fails and returns the value HRESULT_FROM_WIN32(ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED).

The fax service administration application, a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in component, is available for users to query and modify job access, port access, and global configuration data access privileges.

The following topics contain detailed information about fax access rights.
