    I used to have two desktops A & B, they have internet sharing and printer sharing , they were working fine.

    Desktop A XP Professional SP2 PC has got two printers (HP and Samsung) connected directly (USB cable), and Printer sharing is turned on .

    I bought another Desktop to replace B, because B is an old PC.

    From the Desktop B (XP Professional SP2), when attempting to chose the option :
    , to add a shared printer , I can browse and see the printers name (hp and Samsung), however, when I attempt to
    connect both of them, I get the following error:
    Do I need to have admin account with their passwords on both Desktop to be able to share the printers ?

    I have seen this, but I could not find as solution to my case.

    Both PCs have XP prof SP2, and both of them on the same workgroup name (MSHOME).

    There are no firewalls running on both PCs
