Hello,

At work we have a printer that is physically connected via USB to a computer. This printer is shared with another computer over the network. When that computer was on XP, it connected perfectly fine.

However, we had to upgrade it to a Windows 7 machine recently and it hasn't been the same since.

When the printer was added, it asked for a username and password. I didn't think anything of it at first and entered the username and password for the host computer and then checked the box saying "remember credentials". This worked fine until it was restarted when the connection was lost. I now have to remove and re-add the printer after every reboot. 

The network location is set to "Work" and the Windows firewall is disabled on both. 

 

Thanks in advance.

Have you checked the security permissions on the printer share?  What rights does the Everyone group have?

Hello,

Sorry about the delay. It turns out that I can save credentials for the other computer in the credential manager. It works just fine now.
