Ok, I have played with this some more.

Here is my setup.

I have a local network 10.0.x.x/
I have an off site network 192.168.0.x/
The samba server is also my wins server and has the ip on my
local network.  This is the only NIC in the Samba server.
My firewall/router server shows the following from netstat -r


eth1 is (in the firewall/router)
eth2 is (in the firewall/router)

Everything works fine from my local network as far as accessing the samba
server.  From the 192.168 network, it does not though.  If I go to a
workstation Start->Run and type in \\samba_servername it tells me the
network is not found.  If I type in \\samba_ipaddress\share then it gives
me a logon prompt, but it will never authenticate, it just keeps asking
for the password like I typed the wrong one.  Both of these work fine from
the 10.0. network.

I added 'hosts allow = 10.0 192.168.0 localhost' in the smb.conf thinking
that this would allow both networks, but I guess this is not the case.

Is there anything else that I need to do to access the samba server?  It
is a domain controller as well (not sure if that will make any difference
as far as connection from the other IP addresses).

Any suggestions would be welcomed.  I am not sure if I need to be looking
at some routing in my firewall, or something in my Samba server.
