I have 3 computers networked through a router. They share the Internet connection and the printer. Things worked well for a few months until I had to re-install Windows 2000 on the main computer where the printer is connected. I enabled printer sharing, but when the other computers try to print, it prompts them for a password to access the main computer. I never supplied such a password and the only password I have is my login password, which doesn't work for this. How can I remove this password prompt on the other computers?
