    Hey,

    I'm using this guide: http://jaxov.com/2010/11/how-to-enable-airprint-service-on-windows/

    I managed to get it working to this point:

    It seems to be locked and I have to enter a username and password:

    I have no clue what the username and password will be as I never knew my printer had such things. Can anyone help me out here?

    Also, the printer usually dissapears after a while :(

    It is asking for the user name and password of the account on your windows computer.

    I'm in the same boat to, I get to that point and I have the lock icon.

    People on that jaxov site site said to use the guest accout. Not sure if thats a good idea or not.

    What do you guys think?

    Guest account is what fixes it. I had the lock until I did that.
