I would like to address this same question. Though I have "hosts allow
=192.168." AND "interfaces = eth1" lines in
my smb.conf file, other DSL customers using my same ISP are apparently
sync'ing with my nmbd over my public eth0 interface.
I know I can block everything out using ipchains (and will!) however I'm
currently testing a new VPN setup and want to keep things open to rule
that out as a source of blocking. Can I perhaps be using the parameters

Should I also use the "bind interfaces only" parameter?
