Re: binding samba to specific interface...
Is it possible to specify the interface that samba should listen on?
I'm I missing something, or is package-dropping in iptables the
only method? I'm using woody w 2.4.18 kernel..
Well, you should check these two options in "man smb.conf":
interfaces = comma separated list of your interfaces
bind interfaces only = yes
I think, that you should use both. "interfaces" specify, what interfaces
additionaly to interfaces found at starting time samba sould use. And
when you use "bind interfaces only" you should not omit 127.0.0.1 in
your interfaces line, because then samba will use only interfaces
specified in "interfaces" option.
