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 
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 
'normal' running instance of samba, or is it even possible from an
smb-client's perspective?

Hello Nathan,

Have you tried to nmap the machine?; for example nmap -O iphere. This will 
tell you what ports are open such as 139, 145.

Hope this helps.
