I have this samba service running on a box with 2 network interfaces. I can't redirect incoming connections on port 445 because it is being used by this service:

#ssh -fgNL 445:192.168.0.2:445 user@localhost
channel_setup_fwd_listener: cannot listen to port: 445

There is any way to make the samba service to listen an specific interface, while connections on the other interface are redirected?

bind interfaces only = True
interfaces = eth0 192.168.0.2

in smb.conf so it will listen only to that interface
