How-to restrict printing rights based on the computer you are logged into
Posted on 2003-03-13
I am a member of the support team for a Higher Education University. I/we have set up a windows 2000 based print server. We have many student labs on campus, with a variety of network attached printers. We would like to give students and faculty access/rights to print to these printers based on the workstation that they are trying to print from. Specifically, we would like to give them access to print while logged in with their credentials in our labs, but not when they are in their offices and/or in dorm rooms etc. We originally felt this would be a simple task, however, when we began to set this up, it seems that Windows Security and Group policy is limited in it's ability to restrict printing based on the workstation from which a user is trying to print. Does anyone know how to restrict/permit printing based on the workstation credentials and location?
Thank You for any assistance in this matter.
