    I have a wireless LAN with the printer attached to desktop computer. My Sony
    VGNFS640 with VISTA Home Premium recognizes the LAN and shows me the remote
    printer (and shared files) but when I try to have the computer recognize the
    printer, I get an access denied message. I have disabled the firewall on the
    desktop but the Access Denied message is still there. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem. A new vista machine on our xp network can not access
    remote printers that are working fine on the network with other xp machines.
    I get the access denied message. Fire wall is off, sharing is on.
    Frustrating for a new machine.
