Stop me if I am wrong (and I often am), but doesn't the 'loopback'
device do exactly that ? Anything 'lo' receives on its input just gets
shoved out of its output, or to put it another way, it just goes around
in a circle, so how does this work with Samba etc ?
Not saying it will not work, trying to understand how it works if it
does ;-)
