How do I share a printer that is attached to a Win 2K Pro PC with a Win XP machine that is attached to the same workgroup via a wireless network? It seems that the user of the Win XP has to use an adminstrator ID and password for every session. How can we make that session sticky so they do not have to re-connect each time?

Thanks

Have you setup your XP machine to make it on the network so the 2k PC can see it?

Yes, the Win 2K machine see the XP machine with no problems. It's going to the Win 2K from the XP that is the issue. That also includes any shared files/folders, etc.
