I have a business that need to have 1 physical network split into 2 segments.  They each have their own Server, their own SonicWall firewall where DHCP is handeled.  Each has internet access coming through seperate cable boxes.  Each has it's own swich with their own pc's plugged into their own switch.

The problem seems to be there is one resouce, a network printer that is in one of the two domains.

I need to be able to have Company A point to Company B's network printer.

Also  I have not turned on DHCP for Company A, so they currently get DHCP from Company B's SonicWall.  When I do turn on Company A's DHCP server how can  I make sure that Company' B's DHCP server won't send leases to Company B.   And yes do to the network printer the switches are currently connected.
