[PRINTING] Shared Canon MFD needs everyone priv's to print
We have a Canon (IR3170Ci) multi function device that was installed by an excellent Ricoh engineer on our server yesterday to allow printing from our W7 clients. But we get insufficient privileges if we remove 'everyone' from the printer security, even though the user was allowed via another security group. The Ricoh engineer is stumped.
Checked effective permissions for the user and it was as expected, but when trying to access the printer from the W7 machine, we were denied until we put 'everyone'=print back in the printer security.
We got everything else working, including scanning and the additional driver features such on board custom forms but i'm not happy that we cannot prevent anyone printing to the printer unless we specifically exclude people or use the department code feature of the printer that forces anyone to enter a department code to print absolutely anything.

Perhaps the driver is trying to do something fancy behind the scenes that is using the machine account rather than the user one.
You could try installing it on a client machine directly and shareing from there to test if it does the same thing to isolate it to the printer/driver or the server it is shareing off.

Are you removing everyone or ticking the deny box?

Just removing everyone otherwise the deny would take precedence over everything and lock everyone out.
