Setting Windows print permissions
Posted by admin admin on 22 November 2006 06:10 PM
How can I remove "print" permissions from the "everyone" group for the Win2PDF printer from a Windows script?
The open source "SetACL" project has the ability to set the permissions for a printer, and can be called from a Windows script.
The following SetACL command line will remove print permissions from the Win2PDF on server "server1":
SetACL.exe -on "\\server1\Win2PDF" -ot prn -actn ace -ace "n:everyone;p:print;m:revoke"

Thank you very much. I found it a little hard to understand the command line syntax for the SetACL command and this was the exact answer I was lookig for. Thanks for the help.
