[Samba] UDP listening

I was looking at your config and then looking at this:

Well I would say you have it setup right at a quick glance.  Have you
tried either restarting the machine or restarting samba?

Another question is are you sure that the interface ip address you are
wanting to bind to is and that ip address is realy the
interfaces IP address.

Just some thoughts, not sure if they are going to be helpful or not.
But from the article above your configuration file appears to be setup
right...to my novice eyes anyways.

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
