Hi everyone,

samba 2.2.5
The server I'm using has 2 interfaces so using the
interface parameter I'm telling samba to use eth0 but
for some reason when I do netstat it is listening on eth1

interface = eth0 (the IP is

netstat -an
udp        0      0*
udp        0      0   *
udp        0      0* is the IP of eth1!??!

I've also tried interface =

Any ideas??
