Samba access denied from second green network
On a NethSever with two green network I can't access on samba folders from second green network.
The error is access denied.
log level = 0
bind interfaces only = yes
interfaces = 127.0.0.1 192.168.5.0/24
hosts allow = 127.0.0.1 192.168.5.0/255.255.255.0 192.168.10.0/255.255.255.0
Steps to reproduce:
- configure NehServer with two green interface
- configure a shared samba folder
- try to access to shared samba folder from a client connected from second green interface
Suggest Fix :
- in smb.conf the prop interfaces can be emptied, samba will be active in all interface and the firewall module checks the access

New implementation expands
interfaces option to all green interfaces.
interfaces option from the man page of smb.conf:
By default Samba enables all active interfaces that are broadcast capable except the loopback adaptor (IP address 127.0.0.1).
And from online manual (https://www.samba.org/samba/docs/using_samba/ch06.html):
The interfaces option specifies the networks that you want the Samba server to recognize and respond to. This option is handy if you have a computer that resides on more than one network subnet. If this option is not set, Samba searches for the primary network interface of the server (typically the first Ethernet card) upon startup and configures itself to operate on only that subnet. If the server is configured for more than one subnet and you do not specify this option, Samba will only work on the first subnet it encounters. You must use this option to force Samba to serve the other subnets on your network.

- Status changed from MODIFIED to ON_QA

- % Done changed from 60 to 70
- Check the daemon still works on systems with only one green interface
- Check the bug is not reproducible with two or more green interfaces

- Status changed from ON_QA to VERIFIED

- Test case 1 verified, it works.
- Test case 2 verified, it works.
I tested it with two and four green networks:
The shared folder is accessible from all of four network interfaces.
