    So, I decided I wanted to be able to print stuff from my iMac and have it print in my parents room because I don't have a printer. I have a Mac, my mom has an IBM. I go to "Printer Setup Utility" > "Windows Printing" >Network Neighborhood" > MSHOME. so then I get "IBM" so I choose it and I have to enter a username and password. So I enter "Viky" "•••••" which are correct and then I get this...

    So obviously it's not working. Am I doing something wrong?

    network printing

    here is a simple fix, go on the PC and create a user with the same name and password as your mac, no one ever needs to use that user on the PC, but it will allow you mac to log on without having UN or PW issues, its a cheat, but hey it works.... check out some other tips on my site...
