XP WorkGroup Network Shared Printer Woes
Posted on 2004-03-22
I have two machines, both running Windows XP Professional. Each is connected through a D-Link Router and able to surf the net. I added them to the same workgroup and each computer shows up on the others 'Network Places/Microsoft Windows Network/VT-Internal'. One computer has a printer that i have set up as shared but when i go to the second one and try to add a network printer it does not find it.
Also, when i go to 'Network Places/Microsoft Windows Network/VT-Internal' on the computer with the printer and click on the 2nd comp i get the error 'user \\Kristine cannot be found on the network'.
When i try the same thing from computer two i get the error 'You are not authorized to access \\office ....'.
I am completely stumped, i do this in a win2k environment daily with no problems so i am guessing it is a wnXP issue.
Thanks for any help!
