A simple "Home Network" for sharing files and printers does not need a "Domain". All that is needed is the "Workgroup". I would suggest removing all references to any Domain that you have created and see if you can connect via your "Workgroup" with the username and password?

Cheers!

You are trying to connect to resree-pc using local account, but it is asking for a domain account (emmett_gateware). This won't work unless you setup both pcs to have domain accounts access.

Why not workgroup both machines?

Test access a share folder and see how you go, if you are able to access a folder from one machine on another, sharing a printer is pretty much the same in that you access a share printer as appose to a share folder. \\computername\shareprintername will work.

See if this helps.

its never been in a domain only in workgroup, and not home group either.
from what i can tell win 7 home premium can't join a "domain" witch makes the other password prompts even more confusing

What happens when you put in "resree-pc\username"?

On vista you might need to add the W7 user account and vice versa.

Can you provide screenshots of the permission tab (of the share folder) and same for the security tab?
