    Hey all,

    I've just got settled in University these last two weeks, you may have noticed my reduced number of posts lately. In my college room I have an airport express connected to WAN (the Uni network), speakers and a USB printer. Wirelessly its almost unbreakable - using WPA2, MAC address filtering (only my ibook) and a closed network. However, I was just sitting in front of my iBook when the printer started printing some random's work!?! I don't understand how this can happen as I thought rendezvous wouldn't broadcast onto the WAN.

    Is there any way of stopping this?! Blocking the printer being available to all.

    Cheers in advance,

    On your iBook, try System preferences > Print and Fax > Sharing and make sure the sharing box is unticked. Not sure if the Airport Express setup has anything on printer sharing though.
