Samba and Cups :: How to Hide Printer Icons


I am running Linux box with


When I access my home folder through windows and give user credentials, it works well but shows all the printers icons as well.

I would like to hide them all from users. I tried changing Browsing On to Browsing Off in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf, but same result.

How do I hide printers icons from users accessing their home folder through windows?
