is there any simple way to get data about workstation that prints using 
lpd from samba?

what i need is to get IP/name of workstation that queued a print job to 
lpd subsystem through samba.

or is the only way to change everything to print to lpd directly using lpd 
protocol? quite a bit of work but possible.

I want to do accounting, not just how many pages are printed on each 
printer (done), but WHO printed it. No problem for local user, but not 
with samba.
