Windows 7: Installing a Remote Printer when not Administrator

Installing a Remote Printer when not Administrator

On one of my Windows 7 PC's (32Bit) I have two users set up. One is set as administrator with the same User ID and Password as my other Windows 7 PC (64Bit). The other User ID is Standard with a different User ID and Password to my other Windows 7 PC. My 64Bit PC has this printer declared as shared. I can install this shared printer when I am logged in as the first User ID (Administrator). When I am logged in as the second User ID (Standard) and try to install the same shared printer I get the request to log in with the adminstrator User ID and Password for the remote PC. I enter the User ID as remotedomain\RemoteUserID and the password. When I do this I then get the Message "The Credentials Supplied are not sufficient to access this Printer". Can anyone help?

Ok several methods you can try

set the printer permissions to everyone (share and printer) and use the username you are trying at the moment.

Add a user with the same name and password, as the remote user, to the sharing system

On all win 7 network - use homegroup

Thanks for the reply. Joining the HomeGroup of the remote PC did the trick. It now all works. Many thanks for your help.
