problem sharing my vista desktop's printer with my windows XP lapt
desktop = windows vista ultimate x64
laptop = windows xp home edition
printer = Epson Stylus CX6000

they're on the same workgroup. i have printer sharing enabled and password
protection of it disabled. but browsing with XP cannot detect the printer
(though it does detect the desktop), and when i connect manually it gives me
access denied errors and won't print.

i haven't installed drivers on the XP laptop, but all the guides say that
printer sharing is supposed to do it automatically.

Saying that printer sharing is supposed to do it automatically is an
exaggeration. Depending upon the drivers, they may work with no explicit effort
by you, but that's a driver issue. You may need to read the user guide for the
CX6000 very closely, and find out how to make the printer client and the printer
server work properly. How is the printer physically connected?

There are issues with Windows Vista, that aren't addressed by Microsoft. Can
you get file sharing working first?
