    Hello, everybody. I'm posting this from my very first, recently purchased Mac and so far, I'm lovin' it.

    I have a wireless network between this MacBook and two tower PCs. One of the two PCs is connected to a printer, which can easily be accessed and used to print files from the other PC. My MacBook recognises this printer, but when I try to have it print something, I end up getting a message like this: "Connection failed with error NT_ACCESS_DENIED" As seen in the attached image below.

    Thanks in advance! I'm already pretty comfortable with OS X's interface, but any tips relating to making the jump from Windows would also be appreciated.

    Does any of this help? Manually adding the printer might be an option...
