Printer Sharing

stalin_henry
Dear All,
I have a printer connected to a PC, which is in the network. there are totally 8 PCs in this network and all are joined to a single domain. And all are logging under one user name "ABC" and no password. Now i want to share this printer to all the other PCs. After I installed this printer directly to a PC, I shared the printer thru its properties. Now, when I am going to other PCs and trying to connect (install) this printer, thru add printer from a network path, its asking for a user name and password, which username and password I shud put here.... Thanx in advance guys....
Please lemme know

    type the user name of the account from where you are trying to connect in the following form:
    User Name: Domain Name\User Account Name
    Password: None
    What is happening here it is that you are being treated as a user trying to connect the printer share on another machine and hence the user must give the user name and password of his account in order to connect to. It is to be noted that the printer in this case must be shared accross all users in that domain and given permission to "Everyone". If it is given access to specific users, then you will be prompted for such logins.
