  1. Hi

    Within Active Directory environment (win2003 server) I have got 11 domains users.

    A new network printer Samsung CLX-6210FX installed on the server 2003 and shared

    On the server right click Samsung Printer > Properties > Security tab for the group “Everyone “ set as below


    Although “ Everyone “ group has been given permission for print only , why would a domain user still be able to change the color as in the snap shot ( for a client PC) below

    different scopes.

    The domain/shared settings are the defaults while

    the client application still has local control for the print job being generated,
    eg portrait vs lanscape, b/w vs color, and depending upon the print driver features, even the DPI value
