Printing to a shared printer on a workgroup from a PC on a domain
Hello,

A desktop PC (Windows Vista) on a workgroup has a USB printer
connected to it that is shared. A second PC (Windows XP) on the same
workgroup successfully prints to this shared printer.

Is it possible for a third PC (Windows XP) which is not on the same
workgroup (it's configured on a corporate domain) to print to the
shared printer on the workgroup?

Thanks!

Yes, it is possible. Are they in the same subnet? Can you ping the Vista?

The third PC connects to the Internet using a wireless connection via
the wireless router that the other 2 PCs use.
