If you are saying that you print with lpr, which uses the smbprint
filter, which calls smbclient, then you could try editing the smbprint
 | /usr/bin/smbclient "\\\\$server\\$service" $password -U $server -N -P
>> $logfile

to use -U with a variable containing the username of the user running
the script.

don't know haw to pass the password, maybe you'll be asked for it every
