    Pretty sure it won't work - the connection is made in the security context of the user, not the printer.

    could the machines and printer in in that 1 room go on a different subnet? I think you could then use IPSec to only allow communication on that subnet to the printer (although I've never done anything like that, I think it could work!)

    I was just thinking the same thing or a VLAN or something ?

    It sure would - that'd be great! I may well be able to chop lumps out of it and use it!

    It doesn't I tried. I suppose that's schematically almost identical to my first attempt using the security tab

    Wow, now that is thinking outside the box! I could, I suppose give that a go (I've never tried anything like that either)... but I'll try terrorvis's script first methinks as the "alternative subnet" would also entail putting another server in to host the printer (25 workstations so I can't do it from a workstation) and allsorts of fun getting them to see their network drives etc.!

    Sincerely, thanks to all for your ideas and contributions to this - I can't help thinking it shouldn't be this hard!!
