Sorry Eric, I'm talking about Windows DOMAIN/WORKGROUPS.

One interface will have a different Domain to the other.

eth0 Domain - DomainA
eth1 Domain - DomainB

I was just wondering if nmbd will work properly.

What kind of domain do you mean? A Windows domain or a DNS domain? If
its a DNS domain, I don't think it matters. If it is a Windows domain,
I am not sure.

I'm not sure I understand the question. In the link for the thread I
sent you


The examples I provide run a separate smbd *and* nmbd for each

BTW, I built 2.2.5 and it only binds to one interface for me if I just

interfaces =

even if "bind interfaces only = yes" is commented out.
