Trouble with username and password when printing to a network printer.
Posted on 2004-04-02
I have a small office workgroup at my shop (6 computers on a workgroup). Every station has a printer attached to it that is shared. I am running XP on all stations. For some reason on my station no one can print to my printer. As soon as you try to connect to it a login/username box pops up. I don't have a password set on my machine anywhere. Upon windows login the login screen says owner with no password, but this does not work when I type it in for the printer. I can print to any other computer/printer on the network, but no one can print to me. I have tried plenty of different usernames such as admin and owner just to see if it is a default as well as looked in all of my security settings to no avail. Is there something that i have turned on that is not allowing me to connect to my computer?? I have also recently added a network laser printer with its own ip address and print serve, but installed it through my computer and now it will not let me in on any other computer to print to it??
