Howto configure SAMBA interface via i/f name

Perhaps most peeps knew this but here goes:

To save a bit of typing (or a lot when you have a DHCP server on your network) when configuring SAMBA, you can use your local ethernet interface name from Freesco instead of an IP!

For example:

interfaces =

where is your Freesco IP and is equal to this:

interfaces = eth0

If you have an eth1, then add in as well/in place of eth0! Make sure not to use the external (internet) interface.

Not sure if there are any 'gotcha's!' using this method, but so far it seems to be working on this test box I am playing with. The SAMBA manual covers this usage.
