[Samba] Samba (I think) embeded into a machine, how to verify? (remote 'smbd -V')

Is there any way to remotely verify the usage or existence of samba vs some 
other smb-type server? 

We have recently purchased an all-in-one fax/copier/printer/etc machine, and I 
have strong suspitions that this thing is just internally running Samba, and 
if such is the case it may actually prove us able to remedy some of the 
issues we have with it.

The big question then, is how to I get the output of 'smbd -V' remotely from a 
'normal' running instance of samba, or is it even possible from an 
smb-client's perspective?
