samba listening to ipv4 and ipv6

I was having a problem with windows boxes connecting to the server that is being built. After some investigating I figured out that samba was not listening on ipv4, just ipv6.

The solution that worked for me I found on "Flameeyes's Weblog: Tip of the day: if Samba 3.4 fails to work...".

I had to add listen directives to smb.conf.
interfaces = eth0
bind interfaces only = yes

Now the file server is operational for all the computers on the network.
