Printing a PDF with Password Security

I have a PDF that I created and I put in a password to prevent printing and text-copying. However, I want to give the password to one person to let them print. They only have Acrobat Reader 11 (and not the full version of acrobat). I looked for a place to enter this password (in the Reader) to enable printing, and I can't find it.
Is there a way to do this? Or must I create a second PDF with security disabled to enable this one user to print?

Thank you.

I'd suggest you send the user a separate version of the document, with security settings to allow printing of the document. You can still password-protect the document so that only they can open it and restrict the copying of content from the document.

Users with Reader can open password protected documents, but not change the permissions.

I don't want him to change the permissions. I just want him to enter the password which is currently preventing him from printing.

My point was that the password in that section of the security is for changing the restricted settings, rather than overriding them. I only mentioned it to explain why Adobe Reader users can't access that password dialog.

So an Adobe READER user cannot do anything with a password-protected document, whereas an Adobe Acrobat (full version) user could use the password to change the settings? Please confirm.
