Can't get network printer to attach

I have 4 computers running W10 in the house: OFFICE3, OFFICE4, SERVER, and SUZY. OFFICE3 has an HP Laserjet M203 attached and shared. OFFICE4 and SERVER can both print to the M203. OFFICE3, OFFICE4, and SUZY can all use the shared folders on SERVER. Today I tried adding the shared printer from SUZY as follows:

  1. Add Printers and Scanners - computer looks and doesn't find it. This happened on OFFICE4 and SERVER so no surprise.
  2. "The printer that I wanted isn't listed", so I clicked.
  3. In the dialog box, selected "Select a shared printer by name" and clicked "Browse"
  4. Clicked on OFFICE3
  5. Get a dialog box that says "Enter Network Credentials" and wants me to type a user name and password. Didn't do this for OFFICE4 or SERVER.

What do I need to type in here so I can add this shared printer?
