XP Pro fails to route incoming faxes to a remote printer on XP Home

On an XP Pro system, I enabled fax receiving in the fax service. I
routed incoming faxes to a remote printer. The printer is shared from
an XP Home system. When a fax is successfully received, the fax is not
printed. The fax remains in the fax service queue as a routing task,
and two messages appear in the application event log:

verify correct routing method configuration.

Routing method name: 'Print'

I can print the fax manually by right clicking the fax and choosing
Print. Because I can print manually, and because the fax service runs
Local System not as myself, I suspect this is a matter of how the
printer is shared. But the printer sharing options on the XP Home
system are very limited: shared or not shared.

Anybody know the solution?

Cheers,
