Configure Network Share As Network Printer?

233 100+
Does anyone have any thoughts on if a network share can be configured to appear as a network printer, and if so, how?

Why would you need to do this? A network share that looks like a network printer would not be able to print anything because it's not a printer.

We are looking to utilize the out of the box logging that CUPS provides. The thought is to set up a Windows share as a network printer, if possible, add the newly created printer to OS X users, and that way we can audit files sent to the network shares set up as network printers. Convoluted, maybe, but the task is to audit the file activity on Windows network shares from those using OS X.
