User name and password needed to share a printer

Posted: 04-06-2007, 10:28 AM
I have set up a smal network and am running Vista on PC and lXP on laptop.
Network set up ok except for sharing printer. This is on PC and when I try to
access it from laptop it asks for a User name and password. Now I have not
set up either on the Vista PC. I have overcome it by switching of the passwod
requirement on PC but what I would like to know is how I setup a User name
and password on the Vista machine.
I can share files no trouble.
Help would be appreciated.
