Subject: [pptp-server] Printing with samba

I have my pptp server up and running with a range of IPs so multiple users
can connect.  I am printing from a linux application to windows printers
attached to the client machines.  The problem is, samba can't see the shares
on the clients unless I specify an IP (i.e. smbclient -L <pcname> -I <IP>).
IPs are assigned in the order the users connect, so half the time the
printers will not work.  How can I either tweak pptp or samba to see the
clients without the IPs?
