Default Re: Another one

OK, just so I'm clear, I'm supposed to find the IP address of my PC (printer attached). I do this by ipconfig /all, and get the IP address.

Then I go into her laptop and try to access it by putting tha IP address into the field, followed by the printer share name: \\

Did this, and it pops up a window asking for a username/password. I type in my username for the account my PC is logged in under. I don't have a password, so I leave it blank. But after hitting "enter" it says "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Operation could not be completed."
