netbios traffic

Here is my problem; I am broadcasting port 138 traffic on my external interface. It is totally flooding my logs as the traffic is being rejected. Either it has just started or my logging has changed. I can see no reason to allow the traffic (thoughts?). If not how do I stop it from broadcasting all these UDP messages?

Thanks a bunch!

You can configure samba to use only one interface. Set it to only use the LAN interface.
