I have a network where two machines are connected.  Machine1 shares a printer.  On machine2 I can connect to the share as administrator but as another user,who has administrator privileges I cannot.  The machines are in a peer to peer configuration ie. no domain.

What could the problem be?

"another user, who has administrator privileges"  This username exists on both PCs using the same password and is a member of the Administrators group on both PCs?

Also, even though they are not on a domain, are they members of the same workgroup?
