Printer Sharing?
I have a home network via a wireless linksys router. I have my printers
connected to my desktop, which is a WinXP Pro machine. I have printer
sharing enabled and have no problems printing from my other WinXP Pro PCs. I
recently got a new laptop that has Windows Vista Home Premium on it. I am
able to see the shared printers when I path to the PC with the printers
connected to it, but everytime I attempt to connect to the printer I get an
error that says: "Windows cannont connect to the printer. Access is denied."


Any ideas?

Thanks

Re: Printer Sharing?
open a command window

dir \\xpmachine\print$

do you get access denied at this point?

Is the guest account enabled?
