if the printer is running on a print server. .then just use the IP address of the printer.

otherwise, the user HAS to join the domain to use the printer if the login is part of the group policy.

It is running on a print server, but you still need permissions to access it. It isn't possible to give the user permission similar to mapping a network drive as another user?

net use \\COMPUTERNAME\printername /USER:Administrator PASSWORD /PERSISTENT:YES

If you can enable the guest account on the server and then give the guest account access to print to that printer you don't need to worry about it.. Microsoft disabled 'all access' to printers due to viruses that randomly printed to printers- if you aren't worried about it just enable the guest account and then go into the permissions of the printer and give the guest account print access to the printer share...
