I need to run Samba on a computer that also has a regular modem, and runs
ppp -auto. This computer connects to the outside, and nat's for the
private network. Other computers in the private network run Samba, also,
and I've always just filtered out the netbios stuff to prevent it from
triggering dialouts. But now, I've had to find out why the dialouts are
triggered, and although I don't know a lot about it, some tcpdump stuff
seems to indicate that netbios-ns is asking for regular dns. The computer
that uses ppp also runs a caching dns with forwarders to real dns.
Anyway, I know I'm probably clear as mud here... Here's my point... I
can't seem to find the right combination of filtering which will allow
this box to run Samba without triggering dialouts. I know that one of you
must've run into this before, and might steer me right.
