  1. printer sharing


    Trying to share printer from pc A to pc B, All sharing process has been followed on pc A,

    on pc B I am asked for credentials & password, what are these ?

    both pc's have windows 10, latest updates

    both pc's have the Canon printer drivers

    From searches I see that many others have the same problem & no one seems to have solved it.

    how can I share my printer without cable swapping ?

    please help

    :)

    Can't share printer—getting error message

    Step 1: Go to store.
    Step 2: Buy a less shitty printer.
    Step 3: Pick up some beer while you are there.
    Step 4: Enjoy both your new printer and your beer.

    In all seriousness, I have had more issues with Lexmark printers and their shitty drivers then any other manufacturer, HP is a close second though.

    However, if you don't want to get a new printer*Laugh :laugh:, and I can understand that, when my Lexmark was giving me the same troubles in Win7(and Vista) I had to make sure the Windows firewall was ON and the firewall service was enabled and running. After I shared it I could re-disable the firewall and firewall services.

    Can't share printer—getting error message

    Yeah, I have windows firewall disabled, and I don't use any other firewall... mostly to prevent stupid issues like this.

    None taken... and yeah, I do.
