printer problem

By wizard ·
hi! i have a printer sharing problem. i have a network using windows XP. one of the computers has a printer connected and shared. when a user from another computer tryes to print either it asks for user name and password or says access denied. it's the same if you try to access another share like C$. i have checked all the permissions and everything seems ok. the strange thing that it is the only one doing this. i really don't know what to look after anymore. maybe someone can give me a hint. thx all.

It asks for the name and password because the other computers do not have an account setup on that system.

If it is not on the domain, you must add usernames and passwords of all other pc's to that pc.

If it is on the domain, just add the domain workgroup to allow access to that resource.
