I have 16 machines all on Windows Xp Professional SP2.

They all networked together and ICS configured on the server (which is also on Win XP Professional). The server has a printer attached to it which is shared among the machines.

Now I want my server to ask me each time if I want to print a document when it receives a request from the client for a print. I should be able to deny it if I don't want the client to print it. Is is possible to do it with win xp.

If not I have a ZoneAlarm installed as a fire wall in all the machines. Is it possible to configure ZA so that it should ask for a password ( at the clients end) each time persone sitting on the client want to give a command.

Any other idea to get control on the printer is also invited.
