    Connect to a PC's Printer?

    The screenshot shows a PC in the LAN's Active Directory.
    So we can see the PC, but how can we access the PC and it's shared printer?

    When you double-click on the entry in the ActiveDirectory Search, it doesn't let you in.
    So how do we get in?

    Thanks,

    m.q.

    Has the Printer been setup for Sharing on the Host Machine?

    Yes & he's also given me the necessary permissions.

    My Q. revolves around the issue that Acitve Directory doesn't seem to let you into a PC, so how does gain access to the shares on that PC?

    Your search appears to be for "Users, contacts and groups" none of these can be shared. You need to search for Shares or Printers if you want to be able to connect to them.

    Run the "Add printer", then select "Networked" and then browse to the shared printer. If it is NOT listed then it is NOT shared.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
