This doesn't sound like a fax issue at all. It seems to me that you changed
your OS without considering the fact that Vista authenticates to servers
differently than older OS for security reasons. Vista relies on the logged
on user token and not extra credentials. So, though you may manage to create
a connection to a network share / printer, that is not that way Vista and
WFS RPC work. In older OS (XP and so), the RPC for printer share used to
remember credentials but that option doesn't exist any more as that poses
security concerns. You need to pursue this with your network administrator
or in a networking group.
