Sorry for not commenting on this on my first email.. I don't think that
samba will honor a netgroup type setup.. this is up to smb.conf..

You can setup share level access control.

Within each share, you can specify 'hosts allow = '

This is a comma separated lists of hostnames or IP addresses, or
subnets.. man smb.conf will give the full info.

hosts allow can also be used in the Global section of the smb.conf to
give rights for ALL shares.
