share printer

By Billyd59 ·
I have a network set up at home. I have 2 or 3 users. 1 user Is a Amin user with a password. I don't have a print server. Can I share a printer with no password? I have printer sharing setup but right now I have to put a password In when I want to print. I don't want to give all my users the same password. Like I said only 1 account Is a Admin Account. I am sharing the printer from a Windows XP computer to a Windows Vista computer.

print share

I already have the print share set up. I am sharing from my Windows XP computer to my Vista computer. My network for file sharing has a password. I have more than one users. I don't want to type In the password If I sign In as another user. I still want the password for file sharing. I just don't know If that can be done?
