Hmm. My home network config has samba configured to only listen on the
internal network, but nmb seems to ignore that and listen on the
external (ppp) network as well. And it definitely works, because I
occasionally have port-scanning morons successfully connecting to nmb
and getting a browse-list. Of course, they can't do anything more with
it, but.

$HOME is where the .heart is.
