I am trying to connect to a printer on my local intranet. When I go through (Add Printer) I browse, and find the computer that has the printer. When I try to access it, windows acces for a password. The connection path says \\Kenner\IPC$

I don't know what IPC$ is???????

There are two Windos OS's
Win98 to Win2000

Can you please help.

Thanks Tim

Is the printer shared? If not you need to share it and give it a sharename.

Yes the printer is shared. I have that printer on my list of printers. Just seems that (IPC$) is giving me the problem. I don't know what password it's looking for. Where do I find the password. I have tried all of the user passwords that I have and they won't work.

Thanks Tim

IPC$ is an administrative share assigned by the OS.

IPC$

"A resource sharing the named pipes that are essential for communication between programs. Used during remote administration of a computer, and when viewing a computer's shared resources."


Have you assigned permissions to your printer share?
