NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED appears in access to XP Shared printer

Hi all,

I have encountered with a problem with communication between Windows XP Pro and Mac machines.

I have installed a printer (Brother MFC7420, parallel cable) on my winXP pro machine and shared it to everybody. There is a mac book (G4) trying to access to the shared printer. I can successfully connect to the shared printer from my mac book, but it came up with an error message saying "NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED" after a while when I tried to print.

Is there anything I am missing? It used to be working well with the shared printer but seems to be treating me unfairly recently. And I have another mac book(Intel) that's also working well with the XP shared printer.

The shared documents are working well for both machines except the printer. Anyone can give any clue? Thanks!
