The network is made up by the following computers:

1. firewall/router with 3 network interface (NIC),
   eth0 - switch -  LOC zone
   eth1 - DMZ zone
   eth2 - to the Internet provider

2. server in the DMZ zone with a printer connected to the USB port, 
3. desktop dual boot system (Win XP and Debian Etch) in the LOC or LAN 

On the server I have installed samba, and
on the desktop Debian Etch smbclient for testing purpose.
