I have an AIO printer attached and shared on a Win XP Pro machine. The printer is then accessed by 5 Win 7 machines.
On the Win XP pc, I have created accounts that match the users/accounts of the Win 7 pc's. The passwords also match between 7 & XP.
The problem is every time a user changes their password on their Win 7 machine, they lose connectivity to the printer, and can no longer print, until the account is modified to match the Win 7 pc.
I would like to get rid of this issue.
Is there a way to connect to the shared printer on the XP machine without worrying about users/accts.
I also don't want to create a general user account on the XP pc, and then create the same acct on the Windows 7 pc, so they can print.
3 of the machines are being operated by kids, they keep changing their passwords, also trying to connect to each others machines, basically playing around.
I just want them to connect to the printer and print, not have to worry about passwords or etc...
