    Guys, i need you help...

    I've got 5 machines with windows xp on them. Those five machines share 3 printers.

    Now one of those machines needs to be changed, and the computer came with windows 8.1 on it...

    The problem is that i can't get other machines to print on a printer that is attached on new machine with win 8... When i try to add printer on win xp machines via Add printer, i can see shared printer on win 8 machine but when i click to connect it i get a popup window that asks for user name and password.....

    On windows 8 machine, i've enabled all the sharing options and installed printer driver...

    Anyone got any idea ?
