[root smh ~]# lpstat -s
system default destination: HL-5050
device for HL-5050:
hal:///org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/usb_device_4f9_17_C3J220812_if0_printer_noserial

The issue seems to start when the windows machine comes online.  netstat
returns a normal looking set of connections when there are no windows
machines on the network.  But bring one online and there are 100's of
connections trying to connect to the ipp port.
