I have a CUPS server, and a computer lab of Ubuntu clients.

The clients read available printers directly from the server with

/etc/cups/client.conf --> ServerName myCupsServer

I currently have one printer that is restricted by username (via the cups web interface at myCupsServer:631). This printer only appears for permitted users.

Is there a way to have this printer appear for all users, but require a password when printing to it?
