You need to ensure that you have an account on the Windows 7 machine that has a username/password and also need to know the name of the PC.
When asked for credentials when trying to attach to it put them in the format PCname\Username then password.
Are you able to access SMB(Samba) shares on the Windows PC?
Also before we get to deep in this, does the printer have a network connection or is it USB only?
