Perhaps the Windows printer has Access Control, and only certain people
are allowed to print.
I think you need to talk to the IT guy who manages the thing to find out
the service definition and confirm the required authentication required.
I've had much more luck getting Linux to print to Windows printers using
SMB than with IPP... but the biggest thing is to get the "share name"
for the Windows printer, which greatly simplifies your connection process.
