Posted on 2011-04-19

I have several computers that I created a new OS image on that already have a network printer installed.  two of the computer are guest computers that we would like to restrict access for the guest account to not show that printer but when an employee logs on, they will be able to access the network printer.  Is this something that can be done to not show that printer in the printer list under the guest account or even other certain accounts?
