You need to lock down the printer so only the print server and admin workstations can reach it.  Then you can restrict who can use that print queue.


  Check the Event log to see if they  are printing thru your print server or if they are printing directly to the printer.

  What is the Make/Model of the printer?
  Are you using a print server?  If so, what OS/version is it?

I am referring to a network print server (Windows or Linux print server) as opposed to an internal NIC on the Phaser, which some call a "print server".

  If it's a Windows server where you are denying permissions, then 1 step is done.

Next step:
 1- Connect to the web browser of the printer (assuming it has an internal NIC)
           Go To http://PrinterIPaddress
 2- Restrict the authentication to only allow
           The IP address of the server
           The IP address of your PC or the IP segment where your PC resides if there are others who manage printers. The IP segment restriction assumes that the other PCs that you want to restrict are not on that same segment.  If they are, you must restrict by the individual IP address of the PC.  Please keep in mind that most printers only allow you to make 5-10 entries for restrictions.

  Saying Xerox Phaser is like saying HP LaserJet so there are many different models to which the term can refer.  If you list the model number, I can see if I can find specific instructions on the restrictions.
