Unix originating lp print jobs, are shown in Windows print queue with owner username + source ip

Some printing jobs get send from our Unix (solaris) print server (through LP) to our Windows 2012 Print server.

When these jobs end up in the Windows print queue, the "owner" is shown with the source ip adress.

I noticed the change back in September 2014. Suddenly, the ip address was included with the owner field.



Is this a property of Windows LPDSVC or does it come from our Unix configuration? In our Unix print log files, i can't see that Unix sends the ip adress with the jobs. So it seems to me more of a Windows side effect.

My second question is: can the ip adress be stripped off the owner field? This extra notation of ip adress gives problems with our Followme printing environment. Because the username doesn't "match" the LDAP username fields.

You can correct your DNS to have proper host names displayed. At least unix lp did so long ago. CUPS shows both hostname and ip
