I just installed samba version 2.2.3a-6 for Debian (downloaded from
www.debian.org) and I can't undestand why nmbd is always listening on all
interfaces, port 137 and 139 UDP.
I tried to use the  interfaces parameter, but it always listen on all
interfaces. Where is the problem? Here it is the [global] of my smb.conf.
Best regards,

        server string = Samba Server
        interfaces =
        bind interfaces only = Yes
        security = SHARE
        allow trusted domains = No
        log level = 1
        read raw = No
        lm announce = False
        preferred master = False
        local master = No
        domain master = False
        browse list = No
        enhanced browsing = No
        dns proxy = No
        socket address =
        create mask = 0644
        hosts allow =
        hosts deny = ALL
        write cache size = 262144
        printing = cups
