    xp network print sharing

    Running XP with a Mac Tiger on a home network. Share network hookup to Road Runner. Can ping the two machines but cannot access the xp printer from my Mac Power Book g4. The problem comes when I try to connect from the Mac to the printer;also cannot see files on either machine. Friend said donot get a MAC, treats me like a fallen away.

    Re: xp network print sharing

    My first question would be have you enabled file sharing on the folder and printer you are trying to access?

    My second question would be what firewall are you running on the XP box>; the first role of a firewall is to block access into a computer from another one - which sounds like the problem you are experiencing.

    Keep us informed
