I just hooked up a w2k system to xphome system using a smc router with not printer port.I went to control panel then printer and faxes. the printer is hookedup to xp system. I when in a clicked "sharing the printer"and then assigned a name.I was told to click the security tab"BUT", I do not see it anywheres in here. I am to click the security tab(where is the secuirty tab) to make sure there is a listing for everyone in the group or users names.ther is no everyone group.Basically file aharing is not setup.When I go to my network places,there is nothing.no "Entire network".

Can you please show me "STEP BY STEP ", how to step up this xp home system to share a printer.Please??!!!

what file system is it the xp machine?, if it is FAT based, then no security tab will be there, you need the NTFS for the security tab to appear

cheers

http://www.lpt.com/windowsnetworking/regusers/guidshrh.htm goes into details about sharing. You'll want to read it before reading the printer sharing information at http://www.lpt.com/windowsnetworking/regusers/guidprnt.htm

You will not have a security tab in XP Home, since XP Home only uses "simple file sharing." XP Pro also has "simple file sharing," but it can be turned off.
