I have a HP Laserjet 2300 connected directly to a compter running WinXPPro. I
have shared the printer to the network. I have various computers running
Win2K, WinXPPro and Win98 trying to connect to it via the network. When the
attempt to connect is made a request for a password is made! Does this mean I
will have to set up a user account for each and every person who logs on to
these other computers and attempts to connect to the printer???
