Users of that account now need to have an administrator's username and password entered when they want to print.


I am asking a question here. I haven't tried it.


Doesn't this give away the farm? A regular user has an admin user & password.

I guess you could mark this user as not being able to login. They could still get into terminal & play around.

    No. I'm thinking of the scenario where a managed user (e.g. a child) uses a non-admin account and doesn't know the admin username/password. Even in a managed account, the user has unlimited printing capabilities. My tip allows printing under the managed account to be limited thus:

    Dad, I'm ready to print now. Can you please come and enter the password?

    This way, Junior cannot print anything that Dad does not allow.
