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.

Thanks, but it won't let me change the username from guest. The selector is
grayed out.

I do have good ones, huh?



**** original message follows

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.
