Description Robert Dahlem 2006-10-11 07:55:43 UTC
Tested on Linux x86_64, but assuming this is not platform or OS specfic.

I configured "socket adress =" (like I used to in Samba 2) and wondered, why nmbd no longer answers to broadcasts. Additional symptom is that "netstat -an | grep :137" finds "" but not "".

Solution was to configure "socket address ="

This might be the opposite of bug #3500.

This might be intentionally. In this case it should be documented.
