Is it necessary to remove password (protection) each time i want to access a shared hp 1007 printer.
I have a printer that is connected to a Win7 machine and shared with other twelve Win7 machines. One of those twelve machines is password protected. When i want to access my printer from that password protected machine it is showing offline...But when
i remove the password it shows online and prints if given command..Is it possible to access my printer without removing my password.. Thanks.

Since the password protected sharing is turned on only on one pc, you may try to turn on password protected sharing on the PC where you have the printer connected and check what happens.
Usually on a home network, when you provide passwords, it will ask for the password only for the first time and remember it later when you try to share the printer or files.
The settings should also be the same on the PC where the printer is connected and the shared PC.
If it asking for a passoword provide the passowrd on both the PC and check if you are able to get the printer online and print.
