Cannot connect printer on home network
I have a printer connected to a Windows 7 PC, the printer is earmarked to Share, and am trying to connect to that printer from a Vista PC through the "Add Printer" dialogue.
The I can see the Windows 7 PC but when I try to connect to it a Connect box comes up asking for a username and password.
I have never set up a username and/or password on the Windows 7 PC, I have tried the Computer Name, Full Computer Name and Description , leaving the password field
blank but cannot connect to the Windows 7 PC and so cannot get to see the printer.
How can I get to connect to the Windows 7 PC?
