You would think there was such a thing UNTIL you realize that as we change the printer model the instructions no longer work.
This is why you only find guides and there are plenty of them. All of them should include some basic steps like.
1. Install LLTD (see google) on the XP machine.
2. Make sure you have your accounts in order. Many dismiss this and have to come back to re-learn why this matters. That is, in one line -> If you log on as tweedledee on one machine, you must be able to log on as tweedledee on the other machines.
3. Install the printer drivers if need be.
4. Share the printer.
5. LEARN ABOUT YOUR FIREWALL and learn how to allow sharing.
As you imagine there can never be a step by step.
Hello and thank you for looking into my concern,
To start off, I recently got a new Laptop and bought a new Router and currently have wireless internet.I have already installed the printer to my Laptop as I needed to print something from it, connected via the USB connecting from the printer that is. I've tried editing the Sharing Options from both computers and nothing has happened when I test, tried a method I read about adding a new port and it doesn't seem to work properly. I've tried most of the basic things.
If anyone has any step-by-step solution or if you can link me to a topic that already has this question answered, it would be helpful.
This are my current system info.
Intel(R) Celeron(R) D CPU 3.20GHz
NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT
Service Pack 3 - Updated
HP Deskjet 3915
Windows Vista Home Basic
Service Pack 2
