Just to understand correctly: Why the lo-Interface?

According to "Using Samba" from OŽReilly it searches for the first NIC
and binds to the subnet found there. So I could just leave the
interfaces-option away, I think.

Right now I have:

interfaces =
hosts allow = 192.168.16.

I will change it to:

interfaces = eth0 eth1 lo
hosts allow = 192.168.16. 127.
# No "," in OŽReilly-book, I will check
that in the docs ...


Thank you,
