I am having an issue with sharing my printer that is connected directly to my
desktop(Vista), and my laptop(Vista). I have verified that all information
for workgroup is correct, I have disabled the password protection for
sharing. I am getting an error code stating that the network path was not
found when I try to open the host PC. I can access the Media files, but when
I try to access the PC proper, my laptop pings and receives no response. Any
input would be appreciated.
