Description Christoph Klein (dead mail address) 2004-09-25 10:54:06 UTC
all printers that are shared by our samba server (3-0-7, debian binary package)
have the following name: <printer name> on <ip-Adress>. Before we upgraded to
3.0.7 we used 3.0.5 and the folder items werde named as: <printer name> on
<dns-name>. we are using several scripts to make printers automatically
avaiable, that rely on the old naming scheme. "Log level 8" states the follwing

" get_called_name: assuming that client used IP address [] as called

get_called_name is invoked to fill the servername attribute of a printer_info
