That works for me. Thank you, Jeremy!

Previously I was running the test as "make test".
That seems to be running a loopback test.  I couldn't see the error running
the test this way.  Maybe, I missed some required configuration.

After a little more searching, I was able to build smbtorture separately
and ran the ./bin/smbtorture which give me much better response in term of
watching the packets.
