I was flying the aircraft. I had a smooth landing and at the end of the rollout; I turned to exit the runway and had no nosewheel steering authority/authorized. I used differential power and rudder authority/authorized to steer the aircraft clear of the runway. I then set the parking brake and proceeded to assess the problem. Called system and maintenance operations control and agreed steering malfunction had occurred. There was no emergency declared and no injuries of any kind. The aircraft never left designated runway and was never operated in an unsafe manner.
