Ron, Yes you do have a good one. Are you familiar with gpedit.msc? That is the policy settings on each workstation. In case you are not familiar, click Start / Run and type gpedit.msc and run that on the workstation that has the share device. Look under Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Local Policies / Security Options / then scroll to the "network access" section. Look for the one "sharing and security model for local accounts". Is that set to "Guest only - local users authenticate as guest"? If so, change it to "Classic - local users authenticate as themselves". Apply the change and reboot the pc and try again using the login method I suggested in the first reply. Needless to say, be very careful in gpedit if you start looking around at all the different settings. Be sure to record any changes you make so you can go back and undo them later.

The selector is grayed out. I do have good ones, huh? Thanks, Ron **** original message follows Ron, The fact that you are getting prompted for a password is good. That means the printer is being seen on the network. On the machine that has the printer attached to it, if you do not have a user account already created for yourself, do so. Do not use a blank password. Put that account in the admin group. Now go to the other PC and map the printer. When you get the login box, use the computer name\username (main\rallen) and whatever password you just set.
