> max log size = 50
> socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_KEEPALIVE SO_RCVBUF=8192 \
> SO_SNDBUF=8192 SO_KEEPALIVE SO_REUSEADDR
> dns proxy = No
> wins support = No
> guest account = thoralf
> read only = No
> guest only = Yes
> guest ok = Yes
> hosts allow = 192.168.10.0/255.255.255.0
> hosts deny = 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0
