I have some query about the samba security, we are trying to setup 
remote map drive for vpn client, since this kind of client connection 
which using different IP address,  the only way we can do is to set 
'hosts allow' to nothing.  We just want to know if this change is risky 
or not, our samba was setup as a DC, and client computers already join 
to Linux Domain.  The VPN protocol is using ipsec and the samba is 
inside the network which has Firewall protected.

Kindly please advice if any comments about that.
