JSI Tip 5914. Microsoft Fax Is installed When you add a 'Communications cable between two computers' connection in Windows 2000?

When you use Control Panel / Phone and Modems Options or the Add/Remove Hardware Wizard, to add a Communications cable between two computers connection, a fax printer is automatically installed in the Printers folder?

Microsoft Fax is automatically installed when the first modem is added to your computer, and Direct Cable Connection is installed and managed as a modem.

You can just ignore the fax printer. It will not function between the serial cable connected computers.
