first of all i want to thank all the developers of Samba for that wonder ful
piece of software.
Now to my problem.
I run a samba server (smbd --version: Version 3.0.22) on a server that serves
two networks (eth0: and br0:
br0 is a WLAN interface with WDS support but i don't think that should be a problem.
I got it configured with
socket address =
interfaces =
bind interfaces only = yes
But every few minutes i get a message from my Firewall that tells me:
iptfw:FINAL:OUT:IN= OUT=eth0 SRC= DST= LEN=78 TOS=0x00
PREC=0x00 TTL=64 ID=0 DF PROTO=UDP SPT=137 DPT=137 LEN=58

Can someone tell me why samba is sending a broadcast for through
the interface of but with the SRC address of

Full config file can be found under: https://angel.homelinux.org/smb.conf

Thanks in advance
