Windows 7: Windows 7 Cannot see Vista share

Windows 7 Cannot see Vista share

Windows Vista refuses to allow access to a printer from Windows 7. The Win 7 laptops are in a domain and the Vista Home Premium machine is not. It's security settings are set to share without password. The share has permissions and security set to everyone. Related, the Vista machine cannot be accessed by name, only by ip. I'd like to add the printers and not have to worry about entering the password each time as it gets in the way of work.

When you say domain, do you mean workgroup, or are you really talking about a true server environment?

Yes, server 2008 is the controller

Yes, Server 2008 is the controller. The Vista machine is using the DC as its DNS server.

Hmm.. You could try giving everyone manage rights on the printer under the security tab of the printer properties.

Hmm, I recall giving Everyone full rights under Security, but I'll check again this afternoon and report back. The thing is, that should be it as far as I can see.
