samba how to listen on specific IP only
This is useful for security purposes especially on a server which may have a public IP assigned to it but has a second NIC for the LAN.
Here is how you edit smb.conf:
interfaces = 192.168.1.50
bind interfaces only = yes
As you can see above it will only listen on 192.168.1.50 and remind to keep the "bind interfaces only" option.
