I looked into this for my last company, so here are two of the options 
we looked at. For windows there is a server from microsoft that is 
available as part of the Small Business Server, that is what we ended up 
using and it was ... OK. As far as I know it is not available seperately.

For Linux there is HylaFax which I have heard good things about though 
never used, this does have print driver clients available for windows so 
  should be ok.

Both can also be used to receive faxes (they convert to TIFFS or similar 
and either store them in a directory on a server or email them to a 
specific address) if that is a required feature.
