I find some errors in my logs and have some questions about them:

1. Why are logfiles created based on machinename and on ipaddress? Only 
based on machinename has been configured in smb.conf

These messages occur in the logfiles bases on ipaddress (e.g.: log.

[2004/03/15 14:05:06, 2] smbd/sesssetup.c:setup_new_vc_session(591)
   setup_new_vc_session: New VC == 0, if NT4.x compatible we would close 
all old resources.

2. Why do these messages occur in /var/log/messages? And there's no problem 
with our network, no dodgy switches or so.

endpoint is not connected

Somebody said that this is related to iptables running. If you stop 
iptables these messages no longer occur.

Any ideas?
