I just set up a Canon MX340 on my local network. The printer is setup in "wireless" mode so that wireless devices can hit it. I have people on my network that I don't want to be able to print - can I set up any Windows Authentication on top of this so that only some users may connect to the wireless printer? Thanks.

How does this printer do its networking? Its own client software, HomeGroup sharing, etc.? – digitxp Feb 10 '11 at 4:39
It must be it's own client software, so that is why I have no idea what I have control over. It is not a Windows Share for sure. – skaz Feb 10 '11 at 12:41

What about a print server with IP restrictions?

This is a Printserver. A thing like this hp printserver

How would I go about doing this? I am afraid I don't know what you mean. Thanks. – skaz Feb 10 '11 at 12:41
