Print Share Status 'Not Ready'?

I have an HP LJET 1200 connected via Print Share.  The Status says ‘not Ready’ and when I hit Connect,  it changes to Manual Connected by…’.  The documentation says the status should read ‘Auto Connect’ so I don’t have to manually connect.  Why does my printer not do that?  Thanks!

Never mind.  I found another post which said I can right click on the printer and select Enable Auto connect.  But it did not say that in the documentation.  Now it works.  


Thank you for editing your post with the solution.  Hope it helps other users.
