Have you tried to go to start/run and type \\FaxName

Where the fax name is the name of your fax.

Also can you access any shares where the faxreside?

What Operating system are you using?
What is the make and model of your fax?
Do you recieve any error messages when connecting to the fax?
What netwoking protocol and service are installed (ex: TCP/IP, file and printer sharing etc)..

It the system setup in a peer-to-peer network using a static or dynamic ip?
