Not able to access network printer access denied.

My name is Arvind.

My Question is
I have a linux domain (FEDORA CORE 1) and two laptop's which are part of my domain with windows xp pro service pack 2.
I have given two ip's to both the laptop's being primary as global and secondary as local.I have configured printer in one laptop and shared. Till last week i was accessing that shared printer from my other laptop and every thing was working fine.
Last week i formatted one laptop,(which dose not have shared printer) from then onwards i am not able to access my other laptop. I get the following message when i try to accessmy other Laptop,
"you might not have permission to use this network resource.
contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission
there are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request"

P.S : If i have only local IP i am able to see both the systems and i am able to access my printer, this problem comes only when i add global IP to both the machines.And also i have stopped the firewall and other things. Please Help.

Thanking you in advance.

From your post I can't tell if you're running a linux domain server or a workgroup. In XP click start, then right click "My Computer," select properties. Then click the computer name tab. Make sure the domain or workgroup information on the bottom are the same for both laptops.

That's all the Windows advice I'm going to post. If that's not the issue, and you think your problem is with the Linux Server, please post a follow-up along with some more information about your Linux server.
