Printer If I have a network and there is a printer in another room can I make it so to use it you need a password?

.... a password to use the printer?

If Windows (you don't state what OS) then yes. When you share the printer you specify a password.

OK you have a network that you want to share a printer on and you want the remote PC to have access to that printer only if they supply a password. Am I correct so far?

Yep .

Just done my lan with a little print server Can access that printer from anywhere as long as it's got a network cable, plus windows allows you to setup passwords if wanted. But then again I am on Xp, Vista shouldn't be that differenet apart from icons & nag screens.

So when you share the printer just put in password acces and a password.
