Get list of LPD queue names from LPD server?

To make it short - my college is mostly Windows- and Mac-based. Our printing system (Pharos) is only "officially" supported for Windows and Mac. This is a pain because they recently enabled printing from the wireless network to the lab printers.

I know that Linux *does* work, as I've found information from other schools using the same system that it works perfectly. However, unfortunately, it's LPD-based, and all I have are the names of the servers.

Given the name of an LPD server, is there any way to find out a list of the print queue names?

(Something CLI-based is highly preferable).
