Hello all,

I have a server with two interfaces: eth0=, and eth1= I
want SAMBA to advertise and serve requests only on eth0. I have set the
following applicable parameters:

interfaces = eth0 lo
bind interfaces only = yes

When I sniff traffic, I notice that workstations are looking for domain
controllers (BTW, this server is a PDC). My server is replying that there
is one at (the BDC), (the PDC), and (the PDC
interface that SAMBA is not supposed to be using. The result is that some
workstations end up trying to contact Although that traffic
can indeed be routed to that address, I'd just as soon that not happen.
What can be done?
