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??!!!

At another site I got 3 pc with xp pro and the are all connected to the internet with a router with no rinter port, and I am trying to do the same thing with that one share the printer with out a printer router,but I can not set it up so that the pc with the printer can share the printer.

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

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.
