Group Policy Preferences - TCP/IP Printer - permissions?
Posted on 2016-07-27
If you deploy a TCP/IP printer to computers/users via Group Policy Preferences, how can you make it to where the computer or user still needs permission on the Access Control List of the printer in order to print to it?
Since the preference establishes a direct TCP/IP connection, and only references the shared printer's name on the printer server for the purposes of installing the driver, how do you thereafter continue to maintain security/compliance of who can print to that printer?
Does the "Security" tab on the Printer on the Windows print server have no bearing on whether a user/computer connected to the physical printer via TCP/IP via GPPrefs can print to it?
