Hello,

I have shared a printer from my Windows XP Pro computer. I am trying to
connect to the shared printer from a Windows 98 computer. When I try to
connect, I get a message that says:

You must supply a password to make this connection:
Resourse: \\computername\IPC$

Why does this message come up? How can I connect the Win98 box to the
shared printer on the XP Prox box?
--
Thanks,

TLF

Add the User and Password of the 98 PC to be a User on the XP PC...
or
Enable Simple File Sharing
or
Enable the Guest Account.

This is not a printing issue, it's a networking one.

I have a problem connecting to W98 controlled printer - What is involved in
connecting new Windows XP Pro PC’s to a Windows 98 controlled HP DeskJet 500
printer in addition to current default HP LaserJet 6L PCL printer?

I may have hit driver compatibility problems.

There are some ‘old(er)’ Windows 98 PC’s in the office which connect to the
subject Windows 98 controlled HP DeskJet 500 printer perfectly OK.
