I am going a little crazy trying to get Samba working and would really appreciate some pointers. It's quite possible that I have misconfiged some part of the network configuration too.
I am running Ubuntu 11.04 Server. smbd reports version 3.5.8.
My server has two network interfaces configured. One is the primary interface I usually use (eth0), and there is another which will only be used for samba (eth3).
I can always get to the server via eth0, and it works perfectly. However, eth3 just refuses to work. I've experimented with these settings in smbd.conf:
interfaces = eth3
bind interfaces only = yes
But eth3 still does not work. Any ideas?
- I can ping eth3
- I can ssh into eth3
- iptables is down
- I can run nmap against eth3 and it reports Samba is listening (so I don't think a switch is blocking ports)
- I've set samba logging to log level 3, but cannot see anything interesting in the samba logs (so maybe its not a samba problem...?)
- nmbd is not running (I don't need it if I'm connecting via the servers IP, right?)
- output of
netstat -tapn | grep smbd
