Sharing Mac's printer with XP--authentication?
Authored by: jverd on Oct 23, '04 05:51:04PM


Okay, I"m an idiot.

It might have helped if I'd reconnected the 2nd ethernet card on the Mac--that is, the one that goes to the router, instead of to the hub hanging off the cable modem. Once I put the Mac on the LAN, things started moving along nicely...

...BUT I'm not quite there yet.

I can't seem to authenticate. I read some SAMBA docs and the man page, but can't figure out how to get the Mac to allow the XP laptop to connect. XP sees the printer, it's just not allowed to use it.
