I've been trying to get my Linux system to run as a File and printer server
for the Windows boxes on my local network. I follow all the examples, check
all of the trouble shooting guides. I can access the shares from the server
itself with smbclient, the but windows box never sees it.
What I didn't mention is that system is also the internet gateway for the
network. It has two network cards, one for the local network, and a second
one hooked to a DSL modem. What seems to be happening is that Sambo is
sending out broadcasts on the internet link, and never talking on the local
LAN network. Which is incredibly unsurprising because TCP/IP routing is
configured with the internet link as the default gateway.
Now I'm stuck. How can I tell samba to only broadcast on the local domain
