We have a small network consisting of a domain and a workgroup.  We want to share the networked printers in the Domain with the workgroup computers, but not have them gain access to any other domain resources such as shared folders, etc.

Is this possible and if so, how?

Hello,
I believe that if printers are shared on a domain, they won't be accessible to a workgroup unless the workgroup joins tha particular domain.

Well, it is possible to create an IP based printer on each of the workgroup computers & have them access it that way.  Otherwise, each time they would need to re-connect to the printer.

I can't test it here, but have you tried to add a new network print & specify the printer name/route?  ie \\domainname\servername\printername?  It should prompt you for a username & password there, in which case you could say to remember it...but that would enable that person to go into Start --> Run & type \\domainname\servername & see all the shared files.  The best bet would be a standard IP port (if you are using Windows 2000 or higher...or if it is an HP printer for older machines, let me know & there's a way to do that too)
