There is a W2K domain with XP clients.
We have some network printers managed from the DC. I want to set rules that only those can print on a specific printer who are in the same room as the printer. The users can change their rooms, they can sit to any PC, but they only should be able to print to the nearest printer.

So I want to set rights for a printer on Computer group, not on Users.
Is it possible?

Thank you for your help

Would this be an option for you? Only add that printer to the printers on the pc...?

OR... if you go into the printers properties, then security, then add you SHOULD be able to add specific computers instead of users.

I ghosted with sysprep a workstation. And all the printers are preinstalled. Users are not able to set printer settings. I tried adding a PC to the printers print rights but as I remember it didn't work for me...
I'll try it tomorrow.

If your network is not huge then you can apply a local logon script on those computers to map specific printers. Then use group policy to prevent users from adding or deleting printers.

You can only add users or groups to security permissions....not computers.
