You'd need a windows driver for it. Hylafax has several Windows clients 

Note that the Windows fax applications that show up as printers never 
work like an actual printer would. While you can share printers over a 
network, the last time I checked, the popular Windows fax applications 
can't do that. At best you need to install their client on each workstation.
