Only shared printer / access to printer i Win2k

Hi.

Is there possible to only share a printer in a LAN with Win2k & WinXP?
I don`t want to give any other persons logon rights to my PC, but only access to a local connected printer..

You wil need to either

a: Enable the guest account and share the printer.

b: Set up identical usernames/passwords for everyone that needs access to the same ones they are logging on with on their machines and share the printer.

Neither of these will open your computer up to browsing unless you specifically share anything more than the printer or grant these account administrative priveleges on your machine.
