Hi. I'm having a strange problem when trying to connect to a shared printer. I have a workstation with XP Pro on home with a shared printer and I can't connect from a domain Laptop to it. When I type \\workstation, the shared folders and printers appears but if I try to connect to the printer, the credentials window appear only with the possibility of authenticate using \\workstation\guest. I've created an user in the workstation matching the username/password but it still not work... Any ideas of what's going wrong?

thanks

Sorry...I did'nt tell you that sp2 is not installed...and I don't want it, so there's no firewall

I've tried with the guest account enabled and disabled. Still not working :(

The machine hosting the printer is XP Pro?

From the laptop....

start>run>cmd

net use \\XPPRO-PCNAME password /USER:XPPRO-PCNAME\XPPRO-USERNAME

This will authenticate to the machine using a username/psw from the XP Box hosting the printer....

Then try and connect to the printer....
