Hi Sergio.
(I understand is not really a samba answer, but may help solve your
There's a option in squid.conf to log the machine name instead of the IP.

#  TAG: log_fqdn        on|off
#       Turn this on if you wish to log fully qualified domain names
#       in the access.log. To do this Squid does a DNS lookup of all
#       IP's connecting to it. This can (in some situations) increase
#       latency, which makes your cache seem slower for interactive
#       browsing.
# log_fqdn off

I forgot to mention if you want to do the lookup when the client is on you
can use:

smbstatus -S | grep ipaddy
