i'm trying to get samba working on my mdk 9.1 system w/dialup access. My current problem is that the nmbd daemon is not starting.here is output from log.nmbd file:
[2004/11/29 11:43:23, 0] nmbd/nmbd.c:main(794)
Netbios nameserver version 2.2.7a started.

I thought it might have something to do w/the subnet mask so i checked ifconfig:
[root@localhost ********]# ifconfig -a
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0

seeing that 255.255.255.255 subnet looked strange so i changed it to a standard class c subnet mask. then the nmbd server started no problem. the only problem was my ppp connection which uses dhcp doesnt work when i change the subnet. i can log on and see my shares w/smbclient -l \\localhost but i know i wont be able to see my windows pc because i dont see any service on port 137. does anyone have any ideas on how i can get nmb service working in conjunction w/dialup service?
yes actually i do want to share over the 'net. it is unfortuantely only way i can get to computer w/printer.
in smb.conf i would put interface= 255.255.255.255? that is what my isp is setting the subnet mask to.
255.255.255.255 is the subnet mask. You want to put the IPv4 address in there, not the netmask, though I don't think this is going to help you. When I pointed to that parameter, I was hoping that you had a LAN you wanted to run samba on and the ppp interface was causing you trouble.
I can't really help with running samba on the public internet. That's usually what I work to prevent.
