Samba ssh port forwarding question..

Hey all,

I'm trying to forward port 139 from a remote server to port 139 of my local server , so I'm able to browse the remote samba server's shares, using ssh's -g option. This works great if my local samba server is shutdown. I understand that this is because samba is using port 139.

I have two network cards installed in the local samba server, so I quess my question is can i forward the remote server's port 139 to nic2 while still running my local samba server on nic1?

(kindof a linux networking newbie so I hope that wasn't nonsense, just trying this for fun mainly

[remote server]--(internet)--[local server]--[clients]

I can't rememeber off the top of my head how to get a port forwarded to only 1 nic, because i don't use this.

Getting your local samba server to bind to only 1 nic should be as simple as adding this line to your smb.conf:

interfaces = lo eth0
bind interfaces only = yes

assuming you want it to be available on loopback ( and your eth0 device. (change as appropriate)
