I have been getting the following errors:
[2002/05/12 12:39:22, 0] libsmb/nmblib.c:send_udp(755)
Packet send failed to 126.96.36.199(138) ERRNO=Operation not permitted
and a bunch of others!!!
On my network I have 2 interfaces my local network and my ISP's network.
I was restricting all udp,tcp 137 and 138 via iptables onto my ISP's
network mainly because I don't want none of that traffic being transmitted
on that interface.
Then I started receiveing all of these errors in my nmb.log
I looked in the mail lists and saw that other people were having similar
After making the following changes (smb.conf) my errors have stopped:
# Configure Samba to use multiple interfaces
# If you have multiple network interfaces then you must list them
# here. See the man page for details.
interfaces = eth0
bind interfaces only = yes
As you can see I added the "bind interfaces only" and set the interface to
only eth0 (my local network, eth1 is my ISP).
There are a fews ways to configure this but this seems best for me.
P.S. Any replies should be sent to me as I am not on the mailing list.
