I presume you are trying to configure a printer connected to a linux machine from another linux machine on the will then need to provide the username and password of a user with root username=root and password=<root password>...and if the printer is connected to a Windows machine, then you need to provide username and password of an account that exists on your windows machine and has permissions for sharing printer.

hope that works!
