Printer Sharing Problems

Printer Sharing Problems

Printer Sharing Problems

I have a small office network (Computer A and B).  Each computer has its own printer.  I have set up a small network solution to be able to print to both printers from either computer.  The problem is as follows.  Computer A has an inkjet.  Computer B has a Laser.  Computer B can print to the inkjet on A at anytime, even if both computers have been rebooted.  Computer A however, after initial installation of networked printer from B will work all day until B has been restarted or A has been restarted.  You then have to delete the laser and reinstall and it will ask you for a username and password to connect to computer B before you can access Laser printer.

Is there any way to have computer A automatically gain access with the provided username and password everytime the computer is started up without having to delete and reinstall everytime you want to print to the other computer.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
