Interfaces and hosts allow in Samba

I'm having trouble understanding which is client and which is server in smb.conf

I'm trying to track down why I can't access samba from Windows8.

Is the interfaces = lo eth0 my network card, fedora server, windows client or router?

And for hosts allow = xxx.xxx.x.xxx is the IP of computers allowed to connect to the samba server, correct?

Also, there's no way to disable my HomeGroup password on Windows8 for testing purposes. Do I need to create a samba user with the same password as my HomeGroup?

I really hate to ask a stupid question like this, but I'm on information/man page overload right now and would truly appreciate an answer in simple terms.

Many thanks!
