bind interfaces only = true
interfaces = 192.168.133.xxx/24  192.168.133.yyy/24

that should do.

Or bind interfaces only= no

Betreff: [Samba] Dual interfaced computer...2 addrs for same hostname --
samba doesn't seem to like this?

  To support reliability, I have 2 network connections from my win7 
client to my home server.

Both the server and the client have 2 **internal** 192.168.3.XXX 

Doing a reverse DNS lookup, on either of the interfaces will return the 
same hostname.
Doing a forward DNS lookup on the hostname will randomly return one or 
the other (supposed to
be able to prioritize, but when I do that, I get a message 
(rrset-fixed), that the feature was disabled at compile time...)...so 
it's doing roundrobin with the 2 addrs..

Seems like samba is alternate denying requests to 1 address, while 
serving to the other address.

how can I get it to accept requests from either address and send back to 
which ever has the fewest
requests enqueued....but even if it send it back over a different 
number, how do I get it to not say permission denied to me half of the time?

Very weird.
