Thanks for your input John,
if I use this interfaces = interface_name then it listens on all IP
addresses on that interface and there are many. It causes confusion to
users so I wanted to restrict the IP address that samba listens to
Actually it works as a file server well with this configuraion and
people can access all the shares.
