Restrict a printer so only selected users can connect and print to it?

Hi all,

A quick verification, I have a printer that I only wish for certain users to use. Within the security settings of the printer on the server it is shared from, within the security tab I have the following:

Everyone
Creator Owner
Administrators
Server Operators
Print Operators

Server is Windows 2008R2.

I have changed this to:

Creator Owner
Administrators
Server Operators
Print Operators
Users that need access

Im a little confused about the Server Operators/Print Operators, are these both safe to remove as they have full permission?

Or are they required

Thanks

Thanks guys for the info, I have set permissions and they are only working for the relevant users and restricted (prompt for credentials) for other users.
