Hi Everyone,

Is it possible for samba to bind to private IP only? When I binded 
samba to private IP it serves the requests locally on that machine but 
the client on local network cannot connect to samba server via private 
IP. There is no firewall on private interface.

When I commented the interfaces parameter (listening on all 
interfaces), I was able to connect to public IP of machine from clients 
on local network.

Does samba bind itself to hostname automatically? uname -a shows the 
hostname associated with public IP.  I am using Samba
