[Samba] Using the right network interface

I've tried the bind interfaces only = yes but still the same
netstat gives the same results.
What I'm really trying to do and why I need this is because
I want to run 2 instances of SAMBA, a different one on each interface.
The second instance doesn't even start properly.

Yes, samba will listen on all interfaces.
The problem is that Steve hasn't specified all the parameters
necessary to restrict Samba to one interface.
Try something like the following:
interfaces = 192.168.6.10/24 127.0.0.1/8
bind interfaces only = yes
You will want to include the loopback interfaces
Check the sections in "man smb.conf" regarding these two
directives. You need to include the loopback interface in the
interfaces list or smbpasswd and swat will not work.
