Want to restrict print sharing on Windows Xp Pro

I work in a building that has a couple of workgroups, no domain.  If I turn off simple print sharing on windows XP, I know that my files will be kept from everyone that does not have a password, but will that allow those that I want to share the printer to to access it, but prevent everyone else from printing to that printer?

There should be a "security" tab in the printer properties that you can use to restrict access. You can allow permissions such a s"Print", "Manage Printer", "Manage Documents" etc.

Make sure simple file sharing is turned off in the explorer foldre options.

That was perfect.  I had forgotten to change the permissions on the printer.  It apparently defaults to Everyone.
