Here goes....
Desktop runs XP home and has a printer connected by USB
Laptop runs Vista Bus ad connects to desktop via WiFi

I want to share the usb printer but everytime I try to connect to it on the laptop it comes up "access denied"

I can see it OK but no can talk

ideas anyone?

Are you using a username and password to login to your Windows XP Home? If yes, it would help to have the same username and password on your laptop - it is also valid for shared folders and drives.

Another thing is to right-click the printer and check that "EVERYONE" has got the "Printing" box checked.

no I'm not using a secure login

right clicking the approportiate print on the xp machine and yes, sharing is checked but there is no option to click "everyone" in the xp dialogue box
