Is it possible to restrict a networked printer?

Hi,

If a printer is on a network, I assume that means it can be used/shared by anyone connected to that network, right?

If so, is it then possible to restrict who can actually use the printer while leaving it stillon the network?

The scenario is we have a colour laser printer that is being used by a whole heap of people who really have no business using it. At first we didn't mind but of late it's becoming a pain - they use it, drain the colour but refuse to assist with the replacement and costs. Grrrr!!!

If it is poss, please let me know how to proceed. Much obliged for all helpful posts.

You can set permissions from the Share/Security of the printer.

By permissions you mean you can add which users have access? That's great. Now to find out where to set the permissions....

Right click the Printer icon in Start/Settings/Printers select the Sharing option click the Security tab. You then should be able to Add or Remove users or groups, and set what rights they have to the printer. They can either Allow or Deny, Print, Manage Printer and Manage Documents for each user or group.
