I have followed all instructions from the Microsoft forums regarding setting up file and printer sharing. The Dell printer shows as shared on the desktop. Both machines can see the other machine on the network, but neither one can access the other machine when I double-click on the icon. I have disabled PC-Cillin, but that doesn't help. I have set PC-Cillin to trust the other machine in both directions and that doesn't help. When I double-click on the desktop icon from the laptop, I get an error message that Windows cannot access the system. The name is spelled exactly as it is defined. When I ask Windows to diagnose the problem, it tells me that the DNS name was not recognized/valid.
I've seen lots of discussion regarding problems accessing printers on XP machines, but not very many regarding Vista to Vista issues. Any ideas regarding what could be causing this issue?
