file/printer sharing win xp
Posted on 2006-06-29
i have a printer on my desktop and i want to share it so i can print with my laptop to it as well.
both systems have windows xp installed on them,
both are under the same domain.
laptop is directly connected to the linksys router and laptop is wireless connected to the router.
both computers see each other when i go to 'view workgroup computers' but when i try to click on it, i get the following error msg
\\laptop is not accessible. you might not have permission to use this network source. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
the network path was not found.
i have also created the exact same username on the laptop with the same password and everything, i thought that would fix the permission problem, but it didnt :-s
any idea guys what i have to do to fix this?
