[Samba] Accessing printer from outside the domain

We need to give a user in another domain access to our printer:

our domain: OURDOM  (samba)

other domain: OTHERDOM (AD?)

user's workstation: \\OTHERDOM\WKSTN, in other domain

printer: in our domain

user: JOEBLOW - an account in each domain with the same login/password

We're getting this error in wkstn.log:

Our password server (samba pdc) is ourdc.ourorg.org and has smbpasswd 
accounts on it.  The print server has no user accounts on it, smbpasswd 
or passwd.

The guest account "sambaguest" exists in smbpasswd and passwd both on 
the print server and password server, with the same password in all files.

this smb.conf is from the print server:

    debuglevel = 3
    workgroup = OURDOMAIN
    server string = samba print server
    printcap name = /etc/printcap
    load printers = yes
    printing = cups
    guest account = sambaguest
    log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
    max log size = 0
    security = server
    password server = ourdc.ourorg.org
    encrypt passwords = yes
    smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
    unix password sync = Yes
    passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
    passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *Retype*new*password* %n\n
    pam password change = yes
    obey pam restrictions = yes
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
    domain master = no
    preferred master = no
    wins server =
    dns proxy = no

    comment = All Printers
    path = /var/spool/samba
    browseable = no
    public = yes
    guest ok = yes
    writable = no
    printable = yes

Any suggestions appreciated.
