How to password protect a printer on the network

  TaNoLi 04:24 27 Mar 2006

I am running a small business of cable net and ISA server to control all my users. Now I have many clients who have printers, my other clients add the their printer on their own pcs and send prints and my other clients' printers are being miss used.

Can anyone please tell me that when I add a printer which is shared on the network, then it would prompt me for the password which we can set.

I tried to search a lot but I couldn't find any good solution to this.

Quick replies will be highly appreciated.

If the printer is "Shared on the network" it is available to everyone who is granted access to that network - I don`t think you can selectively then prevent individuals on that network acces to individual printers. You can only prevent access to that network by adding passwords to the network.
