I´ve samba 2.0.7 running on a linux box which is connected
via plip to its router over two parallel ports.
When I start nmbd I get the following error:

[2000/10/18 14:35:31, 1] nmbd/nmbd.c:main(757)
Netbios nameserver version 2.0.7 started.

Why doesn´t samba recognize my plip interface?
Does anyone of you know how to fix this?


PS: I sent this eMail before but somehow it got lost
