[Samba] [3.6.6] nmbd reachable on 0.0.0.0: Safe?




Hello

I'm running Samba 3.6.6 on a Linux host on a LAN connected to the Net, with
my ADSL modem acting as firewall/router so as to keep local services like
Samba unaccessible from the Net.

Still, I wanted to check if it's safe to have nmbd reachable from 0.0.0.0 on
UDP137/138:

1913/nmbd

Also, do I really need to use IPv6 on my LAN?

Thank you.
