Hi all,

I'm trying to add a printer as a local device to this laptop which is not currently on the domain.  Is it possible to do this on windows 7 home basic/premium?

Thanks in advance!

Yes you could do that, go to control pannel + Devices and Printers + add printers + wizard will start then select Add local Printer + Next+ select Create a new Port and then select Standard TCP/IP Port+ Next+ give IP address of the printer which is connected with the newtork suppose printer IP is 192.168.0.12 + then next , next and insert CD and finish

You need to set the permissions on your printer server

If you are using a Windows Server printer server just log onto it and add "Everyone"

If you've already done this you will need to create an account on the Domain with the same user name and password as the user who is not on the domain. This maps it across and the Domain will treat the Workstation account as trusted, and allow it access to resources
