NDPS printer rights wide open

I figured out that all users can print to any NDPS printer if the driver is
loaded. I thought that only users in the containers where they reside could
print? Looks like the printers only push to users in the containers but
they can print to anything they want if the driver is loaded. Can I fix
this?

NW6 SP5

NDPS 3.01i

I should have mentioned I have the user rights set up under the NDPS printer
object for the specified container. When I check users access rights from
their user object they don't show access to other containers printers but if
the NDPS driver is loaded they can print.

Set the security level of your pritner to "high". The default security is
medium, and with medium security, the ACLs are only enforced at
installation time. With security set to huigh, ACLs also affect printing
itself.

Maybe it's a good idea to read TID10021048

But then it's also good to read:

Check out tid 10100342. There is a switch on the PSM "ENFORCEUSERACL"
that might help...

Hi Marcel,

this is a really good TID 🙂 because earlier we have the NDPSM
overheating problem at our sites who want a hard security policy on the
print issues.

We will try now how useful is the new switch.

Thanks a lot
