I am having trouble sharing my printer between two computers -one computer is running Win2000, and the other WinMe. The printer is a HP laserjet, has anyone run into this scenario?

Make sure that the two computers are properly connected, check the cable between the two and the network cards. RC printer icon in Printers, go to Sharing, and activate 'Shared as' radio button.

On computer wanting to share printer, go to My Network Places and right click printer and Connect. The printer should end up in your Printers dialogue box.

Create a user account with the same user name and password on both PCs.
Check that this printer is shared.

Find the HOSTS file (c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts (win2k) and c:\windows\hosts (win98/me) ) on both machines and enter the IP address and name for both machines into each HOSTS file (follow the examples given in the HOSTS file. Both machines shold now be able to share out resources
Hope this helps
