Fax Software

Yes you are correct. In order for Fax Sharing to work, you need to have the WinFax Controller active (wfxctl32.exe)
The component is not active when you are logged off. So, you have to be logged in (and Controller active) to use Fax Sharing.

WinFax can still receive faxes when logged off providing you’ve turned on this option and the WinFax Service is active (if your running Windows NT/XP/2000)

The WinFax PRO NT/2000/XP service allows you to receive incoming faxes or voice messages (with TalkWorks) and schedule faxes to be sent when you are logged out of Windows NT. You do not need this service to use WinFax/TalkWorks when you are logged onto Windows .

By default, the Setup program installs the Windows service when it detects you are using Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP. This service loads automatically whenever you start Windows.

If you have power-user or administrative privileges, you can start or stop the service from the Windows Control Panel if necessary.

To use the Windows service, you must:

load the Windows service (loads automatically when you start Windows NT/2000/XP)

enable automatic reception in Message Manager or in the Controller

enable Send And Receive Faxes When Logged Off (start Program Setup and double click Call Status And Controller)

If you are using the Windows service and you want to be notified of new faxes and voice messages you receive when you are logged out, enable Notify in the Receive Properties dialog (start Program Setup, double click Receive, and then click the After Receive tab).
