Can't share Printer on 2 WinXP Home PCs
Posted on 2004-04-30
I could successfully make use of the "Set up a home or small office network" functionality on WinXP HOME to connect 2 WinXP Home PCs. PC1 connects to internet directly while PC2 connects to internet through PC1. Both computers can connect to the internet.
But I could not share Printer:
On PC1, when I click "View Workgroup Computers", I could see there are 2 computers, PC1 and PC2, in the Workgroup. But when i want to access to PC2, it complaints i dont not have access right to PC2 and asks me to contact administrator.....
On PC2, I even could not open the Workgroup, it complains that does not have access right to the Workgroup.
I tried to ping each other on PC1 and PC2, both pinging gives me error message:
Ping: Transmit Failed, Error Code 65
Could anyone kindly give me a help? Thx
