I drop every udp packet coming into the firewall from those ports and samba
(by configuration) doesn't broadcast on those adresses. The setup is safe I
just want to make it safer. And i'd like for it to not even be listening on
So now that the political "You shouldn't be doing this at ALL !!!!" kind of
awnser is taken care off can anyone actualy awnser my question?
I asked if it was possible to hear broadcast packages without binding to
0.0.0.0 (all interfaces) but to 192.168.1.0 instead. Anyone know?
