I am trying to set up a network printer using windows XP. The network works finwe and file and printer sharing are both enabled. However when I try and "add a printer" to the remote computer I get as far as the browse for a printer box, which lists the printer, but when I click next I am asked for a password!! Never seen this before, has anyone else?
Have you tried loading the printer driver on the comp you are trying to print from? I have a Samsung Laser that would not work until I did the above. You also have to choose the correct printer in drop down list when you ckoose to print
the host bcomp is on and the printer is on. On the laptop using the add printer wizard I get as far as entire network/windows network/workgroup/host comp/printer, so I can see it from the laptop, but at this point , when I select the printer I am prompted for a password.
